Product Description
A St. Patrick's Day activity for students learning the rules of exponents. This activity is also ideal for a review for students who have already taken Algebra I or Algebra II. Students also utilize their inductive reasoning skills, as the pieces will only work out in one manner.

This file contains three different versions of the same puzzle. They all contain rules of exponents problems in the form of a 4 x 4 grid where students match up the original expression to its simplified form. The puzzles differ in how the shamrocks are depicted (not in the rules of exponents problems). The first version contains four shamrocks, which make it easier for the students to put the puzzle together. The second contains nine shamrocks, and the third sixteen shamrocks. In the third puzzle, the shamrocks are just found on the individual pieces, and therefore will not aid in the students putting together the puzzle. You can differentiate amongst ability groups with the three puzzles. Roman numerals are also included in the middle of the pieces so that a teacher can quickly check if the student is correct. Download the preview file which allows you to see half the puzzle and get a feel for how they work.

Your purchase includes a PDF file of the puzzles. Although it isn't necessary for use, it is recommended you print the puzzle on cardstock and have it laminated prior to cutting it out so it can last for years to come.
