When needing a bit of practice balancing equations, look no further. This packet of practice tools can easily be used in centers, small group, partners, or whole group settings. It includes activities which range in difficulty along with answer sheets for self checking.
I use the matching cards to play face up memory. It is played with a partner. Each player takes a turn to balance an equation of their choosing. The other partner checks the answer. They score a point as a team for each equation they balance.
