This is a template to aid students in balancing equations. There are blanks on both sides to add or subtract numbers together. The boxes under each side of the equation are there to write the solution to each side- so as to double check your work. There is a page for addition problems, subtraction problems, and adding on one side and subtracting on the other. We found this is the best template to use to help introduce or practice this skill.
This can also be used as a game for students to roll a six sided dice twice and place those numbers in the blanks and create solutions on the other side.
