This is a fun and super simple activity that underscores the idea of equality in equations. It also reinforces addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and the order of operations.
Working in pairs, students get one expression card and they try and find the pair of students that has the same value as their card. When they do, they use them to create an equation.
I even include blank expression cards so the students can create their own equations. They love this!
I also have a set of K-2 Equation Cards.
I'd love to know what you think!
