Students will practice solving 14 algebraic equations including: two-step equations, multi-step equations and equations with variables on both sides. This coloring activity has 3 levels of difficulty to make differentiating assignments simple!
LEVEL 1: Two-Step Equations
LEVEL 2: Multi-Step Equations
LEVEL 3: Mixed Equations including two-step, multi-step and equations with variables on both sides
Includes two versions: Thanksgiving theme and Non-Seasonal theme
Suggestion for differentiating assignments in the classroom:
Make several copies of each level and allow your students to choose their level. The students' choices can indicate their level of comfort with this concept as well as their self-awareness of their own content mastery. Some students will find that the level they originally selected may be too easy or too difficult. Allow the students the opportunity to level up or down as needed.
Differentiated assignments are a great way to meet IEPs and 504 modifications.
This resource also works well as independent practice, homework, extra credit or even as an assignment to leave for the substitute (includes answer key!)
Top 3 Reasons to Use Coloring Activities in the Classroom:
1- Coloring activities minimize off-task student behavior (making it more likely for students to complete the assignment in the allotted time frame) because they want to see what the end result will look like.
2- Coloring activities make self-checking simple for students: "I got blue for #5...how'd you get red?"
3- Coloring activities provide the teacher with a way to quickly assess student understanding while floating around the room: "Marie's coloring sheet looks off...I better go over to her desk and check on how she's doing."
Worried about kids just coloring?...I was too. I require my students to have work shown for each problem as I would with any assignment: "Turning in a beautiful piece of art without the math to back it up doesn't count as doing your assignment, kiddos!"
ALGEBRA ACCENTS Coloring Activities are also great for those students that always seem to finish the regular assignment early. It's more practice problems disguised as a fun and easy coloring activity!
