This engaging integer addition activity is a break from the normal hum-drum worksheet. Students must sort 25 addition expressions into 5 categories as they add integers. This type of critical thinking has helped my students internalize each unique situation as they find the likenesses and differences in each of the problems. There is a teacher guided portion, an independent portion which then leads into students writing their own expression to fit each category.
Included is the student worksheet, directions with the 25 problems, and an answer key.
(Also could be used in grades 4 to 8 depending on student levels)
This item is also sold as part of a $3.00 bundle which includes using counters to add integers, pairs check practice, word problem practice, warm ups, a flow chart, and a quiz. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Adding-Integers-Bundle-Common-Core-1935684
