Do your students need to practice balancing equations? These task cards are helpful to introduce the concept of balancing subtraction equations *before balancing equations with a missing subtrahend*. The students are to find the difference on both sides of the equal sign. If the answer is the same on both sides, then the answer is true. If the answer is different on both sides, then the answer is false. The students can check if the equation is true or false by scanning the QR code. There are practice worksheets as well to support the child's understanding.

*These task cards can be incorporated in small group, math centers, or used as a review.

*Print the desired task card set, laminate, and cut. Place a hole punch in the top left corner of each task card. Keep the cards in order by attaching a ring through the hole punch. Students record their answers on the recording sheet. Enjoy!

CCSS1.OA.D.7

Understand the meaning of the equal sign, and determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true or false. For example, which of the following equations are true and which are false? 6 = 6, 7 = 8 - 1, 5 + 2 = 2 + 5, 4 + 1 = 5 + 2.

CCSS1.OA.C.6

Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
