Our Operation Properties Lesson Plan explains the application of the commutative, associate, and identity properties of addition. This lesson prepares students to both create and identify fact families with a fun, interactive dice activity. Engage peer learning as students identify inaccuracies when checking their partner’s work. Develop analytical skills when exploring why certain hand gestures are used for each addition property. Students are asked to individually complete practice problems in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to understand and apply the commutative, associate, and identity properties of addition. The students will be able to create and identify fact families.
