There are five pages included in this product:
Balancing Equations to 10 - Page 1-2
Balancing Equations to 20 - Page 3-4
Balancing Equations Write it - Page 5
Teach strategies such as counting on, cancelling out, or using benchmarks to balance these equations. There is space on each side of the equation for students to show their thinking.
I use these worksheets as a center activity and use Monkeys in a Barrel balancing on a hanger to help students visualize the concepts.
Key words: Missing addends, addition strategies, equations and variables
