Keep students' attention while having them practice integer addition and subtraction! This 20-question practice has them unravel the phrase:

busy little piggies make farmer brown happy

(it is intentionally off-beat so that they don't guess it early!)

Common Core Standards Met:
CCSS.Math.Content.7.NS.A.1 Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers; represent addition and subtraction on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram.
CCSS.Math.Content.7.NS.A.1a Describe situations in which opposite quantities combine to make 0. For example, a hydrogen atom has 0 charge because its two constituents are oppositely charged.
CCSS.Math.Content.7.NS.A.1b Understand p + q as the number located a distance |q| from p, in the positive or negative direction depending on whether q is positive or negative. Show that a number and its opposite have a sum of 0 (are additive inverses). Interpret sums of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.
CCSS.Math.Content.7.NS.A.1c Understand subtraction of rational numbers as adding the additive inverse, p – q = p + (–q). Show that the distance between two rational numbers on the number line is the absolute value of their difference, and apply this principle in real-world contexts.
CCSS.Math.Content.7.NS.A.1d Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract rational numbers.
