Adorable puppies of different breeds are weighted one group agains another.
Our student needs to build puppy equations to find out how much each puppy weight.
Its a cute, visual approach to algebra and can be given in 2nd through 4th grade or in a gifted program.
I'm trying to come up with these cute, funny visual ways to introduce the idea of balance benders and equation building to the youngest. Equations are often feared and students build a resistance to understanding the x,y = combinations.
Please, let me know if any other pets, objects or story characters may be welcome.
