Resources to help students practice balancing equations and finding the missing addend.
Sheets 1-8: Make a balancing equations booklet: Students draw dots or pictures to make the balance equal, then they fill in the equation.
Sheets 9-12: Students draw more dots to make the balances equal and fill in the equation: 2 levels for differentiation. One level students fill in the entire equation and on the other level, they only fill in the missing number.
Sheets 13-20: Students fill in the missing addend in the equation. Some pages are sums up to 10 and others are sums up to 20.
Sheets 21-24: Students decide if the equation is true or false: One is within 10 and the other within 20.
