It's perfect for sub plans, reviews, or independent practice, aligning with CCSS 6.EE.A.2.c and CCSS 7.EE.A.1 standards.

## Why you'll love this

Engage your students with these self checking pixel art activities to practice evaluating algebraic expressions using substitution and order of operations**.** It includes two level of difficulty -- level 1 with positive integers only and level 2 with positive & negative integers. Both pixel art levels contains expressions with integer coefficient and variable raise to positive exponents (power of 2 and 3). It's great as sub plan, review lesson, or independent practice!

Each activity is a self-checking Google Sheet, themed after Christmas and winter. Though the image is versatile, so it can really be used at any time in the school year. Students practice a series of problems, and get immediate feedback as they go. Correct answers turn green and incorrect answers stay red.

There's no prep required. This is great for virtual or in person learning!
