Chain Reaction One Step Equations
Students solve one step one variable equations in this activity. There are 9 triangles that form a chain. Students begin with the triangle marked "start" and then solve the equations in the center of the triangle. When students have that answer, they match to the top of another triangle and then continue solving and matching until all triangles are matched.

Then glue or tape the triangles in order to form a long chain. The answer key includes the solutions (the letter on each triangle will spell a word or phrase for easy checking).

I print these on colored paper and it makes a lovely bulletin board display.
