“Simplifying the Room” is a set of equations that need to be simplified in order to find the corresponding answer on the worksheet and therefore finding the necessary letters to solve the riddle.
This product includes:
A set of 24 simplifying equation cards in color, less color and black & white.
Memorandum (Simplify the Room)
Spread the equation cards around the classroom and split the students into groups of 2 or 3 (if desired). Students need to move from one card to the next and simplify the equation on their whiteboards or in their notebooks. If they discover the answer to the card is one present on the worksheet, they need to jot down the calculations and the allocated letter (found at the top of the card) next to the corresponding answer.
Once the worksheet has been completed, students use the letters to solve the riddle.
* These cards can be used as task cards as well where students complete them individually at their desks.*
