Have your students practice solving equations these fun, self-checking activities that increase in complexity - three coloring activities for independent practice and a puzzle for group work! In each of the three coloring activities: students answer each problem and then color that piece of the picture according to their coloring chart. In the puzzle, they solve problems and match equations pieces to solutions. Students can self-correct their work when their answer doesn't match one of the choices.
This bundle includes SIX activities:
