PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Knowing that both sides of an equation need to be equal to be balanced is a skill that many students have difficulty with.

I have had such a great response for my original Balanced Equations product for grades 3-5 that I decided to create one for the younger grades.

This activity was created for 1st and 2nd grades using addition equations with sums less than 25.

There are 30 equation cards that students will sort into two piles: balanced equations and not balanced equations.

I also included two follow up activities in case you want students to show their work or you need that accountability. :) One page just asks them to record the letter of the cards that balances and didn't balance. The other sheet asks them to choose 6 unbalanced equations and rewrite them to be balanced.

Answer key has been included.
