This aligns perfectly with 3rd grade Common Core Standard for properties of multiplication.
This memory game includes cards on the Associative, Commutative, and Distributive Properties. The students (or the teachers if you're feeling ambitious) cut out the cards and begin playing. They match the name of the property with an example equation of that property.
We chose to play this game in partners, but it can be played individually just like any memory game.
This is very useful as a reinforcement activity to make sure that your students understand all of the properties after learning about them.
**NOTE** Once downloaded, the cards should be all formatted normally and fit perfectly in the squares. It is showing up differently in the thumbnail for some reason.
My kids really enjoyed playing this game and many even asked for a copy to take home! Enjoy! :)
