    I was thinking you could change the task to include fractions to work on rationals. I like how you sparked curiosity, but I was most impressed with the models that show the balance. What a great way to introduce one step equations. Included a link of a keynote adapting your and Graham’s activities, by put fractions in it and then adapted it to your math is visual site to also extend the activity into 2 step equations. This allows you to take one task and use it for multiple big ideas. This is just a thought as I reflected on this lesson. I attached the keynote in the link below
