This activity gets the students up out of their seats and helps them learn to recognize and name the properties of operations. The properties included are the commutative, associative, identity, inverse, zero product, and distributive.
Groups of students get a set of cards with the different words used to create the names of the properties. The teacher presents an example of a property. The students must hold a word and line themselves up to create the correct name. Points can be awarded for an added bit of fun!
