I couldn't find any materials on this when I needed to teach my year 3 class what the equals sign REALLY meant.
I have included the lesson plan I used, the 3 differentiated worksheets and a Powerpoint I made.
Also have included a homework set of resource sheets (could alternatively be used in class as a reinforcement at a later date.)

UPDATE: I have added a more challenging resource for year 3/4

    I wish this was a bit more challenging. But I can see lots of time and effort was put into this.

    • user avatardave_orrittReply from Authora month ago

      Thanks for your feedback. What year group did you use this for? Have now added a more challenging version too.
