Want a fun way to assess your students understanding of combining like terms? Look no further. This fun puzzle will get your kids excited about an otherwise dull topic.
Included, you will find 3 sheets.
Directions for students are printed on the first worksheet: Cut out the squares. Complete the puzzle by combining all like terms on the edge of one square, and finding its match on the edge of another square. If a square has a blank side, that side does not have a match. Ignore the letters in the center of the squares for now. Eventually, your teacher will show you how to read the secret message.
The second sheet includes a KEY for you: Starting at the top, reading down each column from left to right, the message reads, "Look for a Like Term." The outer edges of the puzzle are all blank.
The third sheet is a 4x4 template to help your students organize the puzzle pieces. When they are sure that the pieces are placed correctly, they can glue or tape the pieces onto the template.
