Two-Step Equations Halloween Task Cards Mystery Activity and One-Step Equations Halloween Task Cards Mystery Activity

Is anyone else as excited as I am that Halloween is coming up next month?!  I couldn't help but make a Halloween mystery activity that I know your students will love!

Solving Two-Step Equations Task Cards

Included is 14 task cards on solving two-step equations.  Students are called upon to be detectives and determine who stole my Halloween candy!  In addition, they will need to determine which weapon was used and where it took place.  Students will solve a problem then look for the multiple choice answer on the task card.  Once they find their answer, they will be given a point.  They will look at the graph provided and determine which suspect, weapon, or location has been eliminated.  Your students will have so much fun with this mystery!

I also have this same activity for one-step equations.

Mitosis Puzzle Activity

I decided to complete my Mitosis puzzle activity with help from my husband :)

Conclusion: This was a great activity!  My husband even enjoyed the activity.  You can have students work individually or in pairs.  It is a great hands on activity.  After students finish gluing down the puzzle pieces, they will reflect upon their learning.

You can purchase this activity at my Teachers Pay Teachers account by CLICKING HERE.  In addition, if you do not have a Teachers Pay Teachers account, then you can purchase the activity from my store by CLICKING HERE.  Thanks for stopping by!

Mitosis and Meiosis Foldable

I am so excited to show you a mitosis and meiosis wheel foldable that I created for interactive notebooks!  The nice thing is that you don't necessary have to use them in interactive notebooks.  They can be used as handheld studying tools or placed in the notebooks.  The mitosis wheel has three different versions: (1) prometaphase is included, (2) prometaphase is not included, and (3) blank template.  The blank template allows you to have students write in information.  This is great for differentiation!  You can purchase the mitosis or meiosis separately or as a bundle.  I have included the link of the bundle but you can find the others in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

Two-Step Equations Hidden Message Activity / Worksheet

I have just finished a puzzle activity on two-step equations.  This is a fun activity that your students will love!

Students will be solving 20 problems on two-step equations.

After solving the problems, students will cut out the boxes and glue them onto the other page according to their solution.

This is a great activity that can be given individually or in groups of 2-4.

In addition, it is self-assessing in two ways: (1) students know that if they don't see their solution on the page then they need to check their answer and (2) after placing their boxes down, there is a hidden message. If they do not see the message, then they know that they made a mistake. This activity can take 1-2 days (1 day if you are on block schedule and 2 days if you are not on block schedule).
