Are you ready for your students to race through the distributive multiplication property? These activities are designed to inspire, challenge and push your students to be their best in a fun creative way!
Students are given a mat and they are to use base ten blocks or counters to make their arrays. They are then going to race through their multiplication problem breaking in up into 2 different arrays (given them the distributive property)! WooHoo!! How fun, right?! I have included a boy and girl version of the mat. You can use this as a center activity and just use a sleeve protector and write with dry-erase markers. An example is also included to show students before they begin the center.
You can give them the multiplication problem if you are working on this as a whole group, or allow them to use playing cards if used for a math center.
What is included:
-2 Racing through the Distributive Property Mats (boy & girl) to use with counters or base 10 blocks
-24 Playing Cards
-2 Racing through the Distributive Property Mats (boy & girl) to use with graph paper (assessment version)
-2 making arrays using the distributive property practice (8)
-Distributive Property practice problems (10)
