Matching Activity – Linear Equations, Graphs, Tables and Stories.
My 2014-2015 student teacher, Kelsey Atkinson, wrote this activity for algebra one students in 2014 and gave me permission to type it up and post it on TpT so everyone could access it.
Teacher Directions: Figure out how many sets of cards you will need – I usually do this as a cooperative pairs activity, so if my biggest class is 32 students, I make 16 sets. Copy the 26 cards on brightly colored card stock paper (ideally), laminate, cut them up, and put them in Ziploc baggies. Make sure each pair of students gets a set of cards, paper and pencil (maybe even graph paper), and a sheet on which to record answers.
There are 26 cards. 12 of them have numbers and 14 of them have letters. Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to match the numbered cards to the lettered cards. You may use paper and pencil, but you should not need to use technology. Here’s the kicker: There will be two left over letter cards with no matches.
The graphs are pretty light but legible -- if I can get them darker I will repost.
