With this activity, students will practice simplifying expressions by adding and subtracting polynomials. As students simplify the expressions, they will fill in an abstract space according to their answer with a pattern to reveal a beautiful, fun Zen design! Students can color their final products or leave them in black and white. Either way, your classroom will be decorated with beautiful artwork as the students practice their Algebra skills! This activity is great for early finishers, extra credit, enrichment, sub plans, or just something different than a boring old worksheet. It's sure to be a hit with you and your students!
