PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a fun game for students to play. There are 15 leaves on the main screen. Each leaf links to a problem where students will simplify an expression by combining like terms. Each problem slide has the expression that needs to be simplified, as well as an acorn that is covering the answer to the problem. When a user clicks on the acorn that is on the top right side of the slide, it will move over to reveal the answer to the problem. (This makes it easy to check students’ answers!). Users will click on the scarecrow (which is on the bottom right side of each problem slide) to return back to the main screen. Once a leaf has been clicked it will disappear! When using a smart board students can take turns clicking on a leaf, or can take turns throwing a koosh ball at a leaf. I have also included a sheet that has each answer for the teacher to print out and look at.

To play this game I suggest dividing students into 3-5 small groups. Then, give each group a white board (or other device) to record answers on. Allow someone from each group to go to the front of the room, to click on a leaf. Then, give each group time to simplify the expression. You can also have students complete this activity on their own. I have included a teacher sheet that has the expressions and answers for each problem, as well as a recording sheet for students.

Note: This may not work on a Mac due to the triggers in the program! Please make sure to try to the free preview PowerPoint before purchasing to make sure it will work for you!
