One of our happy customers shared "... I found the format of having the 3-part lesson (minds on, action, consolidation & extension) really helpful in structuring my unit. Thank you for creating such an excellent resource!"
This bundle covers the Variables, Expressions, and Equations
section of the Patterning & Algebra
strand of the grade 7 Ontario
math curriculum. It contains activities that require students to use and develop their Knowledge, Application, Thinking, and Communication skills in a way that will prepare them for success in grade 8.
This is a GROWING BUNDLE
. I have been adding new ideas and activities to all of my units.

Included in this package:
→ COMPLETE LESSON PLANS
corresponding to each of the expectations of the Ontario curriculum. All lessons follow a 3-part format including expectations, learning goals, examples, minds on activities, action activities, extension/discussion activities, and consolidation activities.
In some instances, there are two lessons to cover an expectation because of the depth and/or difficulty. I would suggest you move on at pace appropriate for your students.
→ Each lesson has a Google Slide/PowerPoint presentation.
I project this in my classroom for students to see. It cuts down on photocopies and makes life much easier because setup is done in advance
for students to work on the material in a different way. I use this an opportunity to spend some time with GUIDED GROUPS (Questions included)
for the first half of the period and monitor/assess during the second half of the period. If you have a challenging class, this can a difficult routine to establish, but well worth the effort! If you have bought a unit that does not yet have stations, they are being added daily.
→ STUDY GUIDE and UNIT TEST (with answer keys)
. I give the students the STUDY GUIDE at the beginning of the unit and have them meet with me periodically before the test to ensure they understand the material
→ tracking sheet templates and rubrics that can be used or edited to track student progress.
→ I HAVE... WHO HAS... game
. It has proven to be a great activity for content review and developing teamwork within my class
. It includes an outline of the assignment and some suggested SUCCESS CRITERIA (LOOK FORS). Typically, I have students add to the list of SUCCESS CRITERIA and we create a rubric as a class.
