Halloween is far from my favorite holiday, but the students seem to love it!
They get pretty into it, so I decided to go ahead and make a Halloween - themed version of the equation picture challenges I wanted to make.
My goal for these is to practice algebraic concepts in a different format. These are great for practicing substitutions (an awesome lead-in to solving systems of equations).
But they can also be an application of the transitive property in some cases on the challenging level of the cards.
I love the conversations that these types of problems inspire. It's so cool to see how some kids work in pictures, while some instantly can figure it out mentally without even thinking they are using any "Algebra."
These are great for partner work, because they can talk through different methods of solving (so common-core-friendly!).
You can also try using one each day during the week of Halloween as a warm-up.
I included an easier set of 4 problems for younger students too (or a basic starter set before using the 4 challenging ones).
I hope your students enjoy these!
