### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fun activity to review equation solving: single variable, includes distributive property, combine like terms, and variables on both sides.

Arrange students in groups of 6. Each person gets a tree with a number on it. Scaffold as needed: top left E, M, H stands for easy, medium and hard equations.
Students solve all 6 equations.
Students cut out their tree and ornaments. The star should match the number on their tree. Each ornament should match one of the trees in the group of six: students then hand the ornaments to the matching tree. Example: Sally has tree #2. She solves an ornament and gets x = -8, so she cuts that ornament out and hands it to Bobby, who has tree #-8, and that ornament gets glued on his tree.
Each tree should have 5 ornaments from other equations already solved, and their own star.
Should take 45-55 minutes.
Document should be opened on the most up to date version of power point
