Product Description
Help students understand basic algebra with addition and subtraction with the scaffolded packet. Students start by figuring out what number an alligator clip art is covering. They can also create their own problems by cutting out and placing their own alligators. These add your own alligator pages are available in two ways--a one time page to print or a work mat that can be laminated and saved. After students have mastered solving for the alligator they can practice solving for a unknown represented by a letter.

Pages are separated into addition pages, subtraction pages, mixed addition and subtraction pages, and challenge pages.

Many worksheets are included that can be used to introduce the topic, assess, and give as homework. I found these pages to be helpful for my students who struggled to understand how a letter could represent a number.
