Happy Earth Day and Birthday to me! To celebrate, here's a math freebie!
One of the objectives my district has asked that kids understand in math is true or false equations. We have practiced these before but we still had trouble with them on our assessment. I made this worksheet so we can work together to solve them on day 1. I want students to be able to look at the equation and make a prediction about whether or not the equation is true or false after seeing the numbers on either side of the equal sign. Then I put the boxes underneath so they would remember to solve both sides. After they have solved both sides, they can circle the actual outcome.
On the third day, students will exchange their worksheets with a friend. The friend will solve the equations and decide true or false. On day 3 or 4, whichever works best, students will use their answer key to grade their partners work. My students love playing teacher this year so I think this will be a big hit!
Happy Earth Day!
