The ability to identify true or false equations is very important in developing math skills. Just like needing to understand how to solve an equation, being able to determine what is wrong with the equation is just as important. Early mathematicians can easily practice this skill with this center activity! It's perfectly themed for the Halloween season!
To prepare centers: Make copies of recording page per student. Laminate cauldron mats and true/false cards and cut apart. Place in folder with recording pages at math centers.
To play: Pull a card. Solve the equations. Decide if the equations are balanced or not. Sort the cards on the True or False Cauldrons. Record on your recording page.
Challenge: After students have sorted True and False, they can fix the false equations to make them true!
*PLEASE NOTE: This center can be found bundled in my Balancing Facts Math Centers! product.
