This is a quick practice type activity on expanding logs. There is a Connect 4 Worksheet that has 10 problems on it and then a Connect 4 Board that has corresponding answers. Most of the problems only contain 2 "parts" in the answer, however problem #6 contains 3 parts. Please tell your students that only 2 of the 3 parts are on the board (part with x and part with y).
I run connect 4 in pairs in my classroom. Students should solve the problems together, to ensure the correct answer was found. Once the problem is solved, students take turns picking their "part" on the connect 4 board. This allows students to be practicing throughout the entire activity, and also allows for some competition along the way. After each problem, students take turns picking their answer first on the connect 4 board. You can laminate the board and use it again each year if you enjoy the activity. This is my first time selling on TPT, any constructive feedback would be appreciated!
