So today my kids were foldable overloaded. We had to make up for four lost days of curriculum. First, we started with a two step refresher foldable.

The last pages in our ISN before my students took their first big test, after starting the ISN, was on Solving Linear Equation with Variables on Both Sides of the Equal Sign. I wanted to do a foldable that I had seen used in a science class before, it's call the Layered Book. The only thing different is that I don't glue the pages together we just staple them at the top. This foldable gave us a tab for each of the five steps and space to solve the sample problem. To create this I took 3…
