Distributive Property

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!
