In this activity, students will solve one-step equations. This ladder activity is a great alternative to a worksheet. Students will cut the problems apart along the lines and work the card labeled "Start" and find their answer on the top of another card. They tape their cards together until a chain is formed.
There are 11 problems. All of the problems are word problems. Students will read the problem, write and equation, and solve the equation. All of the problems have integer answers. Make sure these problems are appropriate for your students - download the preview and look at the thumbnails to see problem types.
This activity can be completed individually or in pairs. An answer key and instructions are provided.
This is also part of my Equations and Inequalities Activity Bundle.
