Students solve 2-step and multi-step equations in this math pennant activity that doubles as Christmas classroom décor. Equations have variables on the right, left or both sides making the activity easy to differentiate for each student. There are also 4 blank pennants for you to write your own equations.

Included are 30 pennants, an optional student answer sheet and answer key. There are 20 2-step equations of varying difficulty. (Examples are 2x - 4 = 2 and 4 + 3x = 5x.) and 10 multi-step equations with variables on both sides.

Once a pennant is complete, it can be hung along a string in your classroom to show the world that, "Hey, we know how to solve equations!" Students can also choose to decorate their ornaments with bows and holly that can be cut out from each page. These make for a super festive classroom display.

Each group of students can be given a set of pennants, scissors and either glue, tape or a stapler. Students can be in charge of cutting out the pennants. Groups can compete to see which group can complete the most pennants or your entire class can add pennants to one string as they complete each one. You may also choose to have your students color their pennants to add to your classroom décor.
