    I think making the video might be difficult and time-consuming, but I thought of making a comic strip with blank thought bubbles (depicting the airport scenario). Students might be interested in guessing what they are talking about.

    Before I run this lesson, I would also want to go through some expected mistakes and write out how I could respond to them to gear students toward the correct equation. I think algebra tiles would be so useful to have out for this lesson, so students could model 5(x+17) instead of the common mistake of 5x + 17.
