This notebook file contains the Sharks and Minnows game for solving equations by combining like terms. Students should work in small teams that each get their own colored fish. The teachers should select the light blue box in the upper left corner of the screen and delete it. Behind the box is a problem. The students complete the problem and if their team gets it correct the fish can move forward towards the safety of the coral reef. After the first problem, the teacher should delete the problem and the next blue box which will reveal the next problem. The round is over when a fish reaches the coral.
The game can be adapted for ANY subject or grade level! Please contact me if you need assistance changing the game for your class!
