After reviewing the order of operations, we completed this negatives and exponents graphic organizer in our Algebra 1 interactive notebook.

I think in the future, I would make this activity into some sort of card sort instead. I also wish I would have had a place where students formally recorded the difference between a negative inside parentheses and a negative without parentheses. I did a better job of this with some of my classes than others.
