Do your students need practice with using the equal sign and balancing equations? This fun Write the Room Activity is just the activity to give them this practice! Students will travel around the room using a recording sheet to record whether the equations shown on each card are true or false.

Each card includes two equations with an equal sign between them. Students will determine whether the equations are equal or not and then circle true of false on their recording sheet.

A second set of cards are also included for you to use for differentiating. The second set of cards uses the same equation on one side and the answer on the other (switches sides on the cards). Students will also circle true or false with this set. This set is perfect for those children in your class who need some extra support understanding the equal sign and sets them up for success before moving to the more difficult task of comparing two equations.

There are 3 recording sheets included so you can choose how many cards for your students to complete.

Your students will be having so much fun they won’t realize they are practicing!

Understand the meaning of the equal sign, and determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true or false. For example, which of the following equations are true and which are false? 6 = 6, 7 = 8 - 1, 5 + 2 = 2 + 5, 4 + 1 = 5 + 2.
