Concentration!

In math this week, we studied the “distributive property” which can be a little confusing to say the least.

In order to reinforce what was taught in class, the students played a game of “Memory”, which is also known a “Concentration”. (This really showed my age because none of the students, including our wonderful teaching assistant had ever heard of this game!)  The point of the game is to match two cards together that are examples of the same number sentence, one being an example of the distributive property. The twist is all of the cards are face down and players can only turn over two cards at a time trying to make a match.  Players have to memorize where the cards are which is a skill in itself.

After the first round of “Memory” the students could make up their own game using the cards.  It was great to see all of the students brainstorming and working so well together to come up with different ideas.
