#### Closing the Lesson

*5 min*

This lesson really applies math practice standard five **(MP5)**by allowing students to use area models to visualize and understand the distributive property through illustration. In closing the lesson you can begin to move students into more abstract and algebraic expressions if you feel they are ready, such as (3x +4y)^{2 }
