I like the matchbook foldables because the flaps don't end up flipping over.
There are also some practice problems.
Yes I know it should say algebraic expressions (plural). I changed it on the sheet you can download.
When you pull down the flap there are definitions for term and algebraic expressions. When you open up the next flaps I placed arrows to show the section that is a term and that the entire problem is an algebraic expression.
I liked color coding the different vocabulary words to give an added visual for students.

I will use this foldable for my Algebra and Pre-Algebra classes this year. Last year I did Interactive Notebooks only with my pre-algebra classes. This year I plan to start using them in Algebra as well. I'm excited about that.
The summer has flown by. I start school next week and on Friday for our in-service we are having our first Kagan strategies training. I can't wait. Look forward to a post next week with reflections about the training.
Til next time,
