SCOOT Linear Equations with Variables on Both Sides
About This Product
Looking for a fun and engaging way to help your students master the art of solving equations with variables on both sides? Look no further than this exciting new Scoot game! Featuring task cards that challenge students to solve multi-step equations using the distributive property, combining like terms, and integers, this game is the perfect way to make algebra practice more enjoyable and rewarding for students.
The game is easy to set up and play. Simply put a question card on each desk, and give each student an answer sheet and a pencil. Students will then answer the question card on their desk and record their answer on their answer sheet, making sure to answer the correct number. Set a time limit (such as 2 minutes) for students to answer each question, and then say "Scoot". When you say "Scoot", students will quickly stand up, leave their card at their desk, and move to the next desk with the next number, where they will start working immediately on the next question.
Once all students have completed the task cards, you can check the answers as a group, providing feedback and corrections as needed. This format encourages students to work at their own pace, while also promoting collaboration and teamwork as they move around the classroom and work with their peers.
In addition to the Scoot game, there are other ways to use task cards in the classroom. For example, you could use them as an exit slip, with a student choosing a card and solving the equation before leaving class. Alternatively, you could copy the cards onto colored card stock, laminate them, and use them year after year, making them a valuable and versatile addition to your classroom resources.
Overall, this Scoot game is a great way to make algebra practice more engaging and enjoyable for students, while also promoting critical thinking skills and collaborative learning. So why not give it a try in your classroom today, and see how much fun solving equations with variables on both sides can be!
