This cut, paste and solve activity will give your students practice at writing one step algebraic equations and solving them. Students are given twelve Thanksgiving themed problems that they must first write an algebraic equation representing the problem and then they solve the equation, practicing two related skills at once. (I've also included a version that does not require cutting and pasting.)
I check this as students finish and have them glue it into their math notebooks, or you could collect it to assess your student's work.
This product is classroom tested and an answer key is included.
