I cannot believe that it is September! I mean, where did August go?! July was nice and slow, but August just flew by!
Anyway, I did a little work this weekend to help get back into the swing of things. One of the things that I did was create yet another resource for combining like terms. It's a skill that comes up in my first unit with 7th graders, and it's a really important one, so I feel the more resources you have, the better!
This puzzle is very similar to my Fraction, Decimal, and Percent Puzzles. There are 21 puzzles, each containing 2 equivalent expressions and a simplified answer. I made sure to use a variety of positive and negative terms so kids can practice adding and subtracting integers while they do this. I also used a combination of two- and three-term expressions. It will be a good center activity and/or game. I created a recording sheet as well as an answer key. I'm hoping my students will enjoy the activity.
Here are some pictures:
If you like the puzzles, they are available in both my TpT store and my TN store.
Enjoy the rest of your Labor Day Weekend!
