Many of my students are visual learners, as am I. So, I knew this would be perfect for my students. I showed the students my example of each property (such as Identity Property of Addition)

Then, I gave them a blank card shown below for each property that we were going to do.

Click on picture for the card :)

The students drew their own picture in the large space at the top, wrote a description of the property in the "words" section, and wrote a math problem using the property in the "math example" section. This was HUGE as it merged the linguistic learners with visual learners with mathematical learners. Each student was engaged and thinking deeply about what the properties meant. POWERFUL!

Here's some examples of their work :)

Happy May!
