I saw this idea on Sarah’s Math = Love blog. She actually got the idea from Adventures in Teaching. So the idea is to teach the distributive property using combo meals. I created this activity for the kids to do.
I feel like this was the first time I taught the distributive property where the kids were all talking about how easy it was and how it made so much sense- such a great feeling for a teacher! I am going to do the same thing for combining like terms tomorrow, so I hope the success continues!
