Students LOVE this hands-on activity that introduces them to writing equations with variables and prepares them for adding and subtracting fractions. This game addresses so many Common Core standards!
***You can also buy this activity as part of a bundle here.
Every time I have done this lesson which students (which is MANY!), the entire class is engaged and excited.
This activity lends itself to wonderful and meaningful math talk. Students share strategies for finding equivalent area, notices about proportion, multiplication connections, and more.
I hope you love this activity as much as I do!
