### Description

Students need a lot of practice in Balancing Equations. Balancing Equations: Practice Makes Perfect is so helpful for my students during Morning Work, Do-Nows, and Fast Finisher work. I have left them for substitutes and have given them for homework, too. As you approach end-of-year testing, they are great for reinforcing and refreshing concepts.

There are 19 sheets included. Included in this packet are two pages that you can reuse again and again since you can use them as templates or have students fill in to complete independently or swap with a partner.

What's Included:

✿ Addition to 10: Find Missing Number to Balance Equation

✿ SAME but Subtraction to 20

✿ Same but mixed practice

✿ Balance the pans on the scales: One side is filled in and kids can use addition or subtraction to figure out a solution.

✿ Make scales balanced OR unbalanced according to symbol on scale: Great challenge page! Kids can use addition/subtraction or combo of both.

✿ Use combo of 4 given numbers to create a balanced equation (addition)

✿ Same as above but subtraction.

✿ Solve am addition or subtraction problem and find other problems with same answer. (Equiv. names for numbers.)

✿ Spinner Games in addition and subtraction.

✿ Cut and Paste for balanced and unbalanced (two of them so you can use for classwork and homework.)

✿ Make up/Record own balanced and unbalanced equations.

✿ Find Balanced Equations (addition to 10, subtraction to 10, and one mixed page to 20. All three pages have additional directions for writing on back of page: Describe what a balanced equation is; Why must you always start with the bigger number when subtracting? Select 5 unbalanced equations and rewrite to balance them.

✿ Color in Balanced Bananas (two of them so you can use for classwork and homework.)

✿ Blank Banana page from above so you can write YOUR equations in OR have kids make up completely on own.

Thanks for looking!

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Explain why addition and subtraction strategies work, using place value and the properties of operations.
Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.
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).
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.
Determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 + ? = 11, 5 = ▯ - 3, 6 + 6 = ▯.
