A class favorite! Students solve problems to find the missing words in an entertaining poem. A fun, self-checking activity! In this activity, students follow the order of operations to simplify expressions in order to fill in the fun limerick. The expressions include addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponents, parentheses, and brackets. The poem may seem silly, but it's a great motivator for students!

Includes TWO formats: one to use as an individual activity and one that can be cut up to use with small groups or at stations.
