Properties Of Addition : Line up

This activity helps kids understand the associative property of addition in a better way. This activity is conducted for a group of kids. This activity of lineup can be performed in the following ways:

  1. Write numbers between 0 and 10 on various pieces of paper and distribute them among the kids.
  2. Say start and let the kids run freely around the space.
  3. Then shout for any number, like “Line up into 2.” Then all the kids gather into a group of 2.
  4. Instruct kids to calculate the sum of the 2 numbers they are holding.

Let the kids understand that the sum of numbers is independent of the order of the numbers added. Kids know that the sum of the numbers remains the same regardless of the order in which they are added.
