This fun Trick or Treat Halloween activity has students answer questions with 2 answer choices. One is a "trick" (incorrect answer) and one is a "treat" (correct answer). In this Halloween game, students solve 16 multi-step equations with variables on both sides and then lift a flap to see if they were tricked or not. Students will need to collect like terms and use the distributive property to solve the equations. Answers include some fractions as well as no solution and infinitely many solutions.

Students love these... especially when real treats are involved! I hope you love it and your students learn it!

Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.
Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler forms, until an equivalent equation of the form 𝘹 = 𝘒, 𝘒 = 𝘒, or 𝘒 = 𝘣 results (where 𝘒 and 𝘣 are different numbers).
Solve linear equations in one variable.
Solve word problems leading to equations of the form 𝘱𝘹 + 𝘲 = 𝘳 and 𝘱(𝘹 + 𝘲) = 𝘳, where 𝘱, 𝘲, and 𝘳 are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. For example, the perimeter of a rectangle is 54 cm. Its length is 6 cm. What is its width?
