Sometimes allowing your students to work in pairs is a great way to break up your classroom routine and facilitate small group interaction. I have often found that sometimes the best way for a student tolearn a topic is from another student. These 6 pair activities provide students with a way to work on one step equations.
There are three different types of activities. One is a set of equations that a pair of students work on simultaneously. They total their solutions to see if they are correct by matching a grand total for the sheet. Another is a variation of the dot and boxes game where students have to match solutions to earn the box. If they don’t do their work correctly, the opposing student can ‘steal’ their box. Finally, there’s a variation of tic tac toe that requires students to solve an equation before earning the right to put an ‘x’ or ‘o’ in the grid.
Each activity has 2 different versions so that you can use them in station, on different days or to review before a test .
