Are you looking for a way to make balanced equations fun? My first graders struggled with the concept until we started playing the “Same Dominoes” game. Suddenly, finding the missing number was like a magic trick, and they knew the secret!
Once they saw the dots on the left and were able to count on to add dots onto the right, they were able to solve the equations. Having the equation under the illustrations helps students make the connection between the equation and the visual representation.
