This product is a Think Tac Toe (Choice) Board, designed to help students explore and review algebraic expressions.
Choice boards are a popular engagement strategy, allowing students to select tasks that appeal to them most.
This Think Tac Toe board requires students to complete any three in a row tasks, which must include the middle square, an anchor activity.
The tasks from which students can choose include writing "I'm Thinking of a Number" puzzles; writing a song, poem, or rap related to algebraic expressions; a matching activity/ card sort; solving problems of higher cognitive demand; solving, writing and illustrating a real life algebraic expression problem; and evaluating algebraic expressions using a paper bag filled with colorful wooden blocks.
The product includes the Choice board and all related files, including detailed answer keys. It is suitable for grades 6 through 9.
I hope your students will enjoy the Think Tac Toe Board and tasks. I look forward to your feedback!
