PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Balancing Act task cards are a fun way to help students understand balancing equations! There are 2 sets of task cards included in this download. Cards 1-24 are the Beginning Level and ask students to balance equations like 2 + 2 = 4 and 3 + 6 = 9. Cards 25-48 are the Intermediate Level and challenge students to balance equations like 4 + 2 + 2 = 8 and 2 + 3 + 5 = 10. A scale in 3 different colors is provided along with aquatic animal tokens to use with the scales.

How it works:
Students will pick a task card and read the challenge, like "Can you balance 2 crabs and 1 dolphin?" They will pick out 2 crab tokens and 1 dolphin token and note that each crab has a value of 1 and the dolphin has a value of 2. They have successfully balanced the equation when they place 2 crabs on one side of the scale and 1 dolphin on the other. Plus and equal signs are included, if needed. They will then write their answers on the recording sheets.

This set comes with instructions, title cards, award cards, scales, aquatic animal tokens, 48 task cards, recording sheets in 2 different styles, and answer keys.
