This game of battleship will help students practice using estar with emotions and feelings.
Feelings included are: tired, sad, worried, busy, excited, content, sick, calm, nervous.
Each student plots 6 ships on the bottom grid. In order to hit a
Students compete in teams of 4 or 5 to correctly solve multi-step equations. Each student completes one step of the solution, and then passes the work to the next team member. The next team member checks the work, and then completes the next step.
In this activity, students work to match exponential functions with graphs and descriptions.
Included are 27 cards:
- 9 equations
- 9 graphs
- 9 descriptions
I had students work with groups of 3-4 to sort the cards into nine groups of three,
Students work with a partner. Each partner has a different weather forecast. Students take turns describing the weather each day to their partner, who draws pictures based on what they hear.
Great way to get students speaking and using weather
In this activity, students practice writing systems based on story problems, and vice-versa.
Student 1 reads the story problem, and write a system based on the problem.
Student 1 then folds the paper so that only the system is visible, not the
This includes a 4x5 grid with 20 expressions and equations illustrating properties of real numbers.
There is a color-coded key at the top of the paper. Students use the key to color each square based on the property it illustrates.
There are 10 creatures on a graph. The goal is to "capture" each creature by finding the equation for a parabola whose vertex hits that creature.
Five equations are given for students to match, and then they write equations for the remaining five
Students practice evaluating six algebraic expressions by rolling a die twice to find their x and y values. They substitute these values into an expression and evaluate. Their goal is to have a higher final score than their partner.
I used this at
Story cubes are great for helping kids write more creative stories all while giving them structure. Place different words or images in each box, print it off, and fold to create a die.
I use these in my Spanish classes and put images of our
Included are 11 word problems to help students setup and solve equations, and a recording sheet. They are mostly multi-step equations.
Students start at any station, set up an equation, and solve.
Their answer will lead them to the next station.
In this activity, students will see that being able to convert between units is an essential skill in today’s world, especially if they want to travel.
4 stations from 4 different countries:
Included are 16 cards for students to identify as examples and non-examples of functions.
The functions are represented as tables, graphs, sets of ordered pairs, and mapping diagrams.
Answer key included
Included are two sets of 5 systems. Give each student one set, and have them solve the systems. After solving each system, they should compare with their partner. Partners should have the same solutions for corresponding problems.
