Description

UPDATED 5-2-2020- NOW INCLUDED A COMPLETE DIGITAL VERSION!!! PERFECT FOR ONLINE LEARNING!!!!

My students LOVE this activity and now your students can LOVE it too! This activity combines logic, problem solving and writing equations using a letter or variable for the unknown quantity! This is an amazing, rigorous activity your students will love and be engaged throughout!

Each station is a "canister" with a hidden number of beads. Students will rotate through stations, (or task cards can be used and are included in the download) write and solve equations to match the problem at each station. Students will then use QR Codes to reveal the contents of each canister! Students can immediately check their work using the QR Codes!

The QR Codes used are pictures of my own personal canisters and beads, so that you can have my activity, in your own classroom! If you would like to use real canisters and real beads, I have included directions on how to make real canisters!

Download comes with:

13 Station Cards - Canisters with Beads seen in each QR Code

Recording Sheets

Answer Sheets

Teacher directions- which includes a link to my blog where this activity is featured

PDF with little slides to be used as task cards if you would rather use this activity as task cards
