Looking for step by step instructions for interactive note booking while teaching combining like terms? This file is exactly what you need! There are complete instructions for notebook organization and how students use a self assessment stop light graphic organizer to communicate their comprehension of the lesson. This lesson includes complete instructions and a unique lesson where students will combine like terms beginning at the bottom of a tree and work their way to the top. Tap into your student’s interest by allowing them to decorate their tree for the current season or for a hobby they enjoy. There are also pictures of sample pages.
I have used this lesson with my 6th grade students, and it is effective in teaching this concept.
