Looking for fun and engaging hands-on algebra activities? I offer hundreds of free printable activities for teaching a wide range of middle school or high school algebra topics.

I created these algebra activities during my 10+ years in the high school math classroom. During that time, I taught Algebra 1 for 6 years and Algebra 2 for 8 years.

I have also created many activities to review middle school algebra concepts to use with 9th grade students who were identified as not yet being ready for Algebra 1.
