Balance the Scale

Use the numbers in the box to make both sides of the scale equal. For a great visual have the students use an actual scale and blocks to make it balance.
Blank Worksheet

The students used the blank worksheet to fill in for a friend and then they exchanged and solved them. This was a great twist and helped them really think about both sides having the same sum.
