In this fun activity the students cut out rectangles of answers and questions. After solving a question, they match up the correct answer to it, which leads to the next question. Once done, the students tape the rectangle strips together to make a paper chain. I had no idea how much my students would LOVE making the paper chain. They even chose to stay in at recess to finish! The paper chain make a great decoration for the room- copy the papers in colors of the season.
