Product Description
Use the Distributive Dentist as a concrete way to teach the distributive property of multiplication. Begin with the concrete manipulatives, I like to use mini marshmallows to look like little teeth, to physically build and break apart arrays to show the distributive property. Next, move to representational paper/pencil tasks with pictures of teeth where students have to figure out the questions and finally to abstract where students will generate the two numbers for the equation, draw the array, draw the broken apart array and write the correct equations.
