This is a great activity for centers or even as a whole class lesson! Students can play the game independently or with a partner.
This activity can be used after the introduction of simple equations to help reinforce the skill in a fun way. Using the basic principle of a memory game, students match a one-step equation with the solution to the variable in the equation.
I recommend printing the cards on card stock and laminating prior to cutting out and playing the game. I hope you and your students enjoy!
