Students draw and color a scenario that they can identify the independent and dependent variable. I usually assign this for homework, and post the best on the bulletin board outside my classroom. This is a two page handout, but should be printed on one page front and back.
The front page is where the student will draw and color their scenario, as well as write their Independent and Dependent sentence. The back is where the student identifies the independent and dependent variables. I have also included a lesson plan description.
