Are you looking for a way to make solving 1st grade word problems more exciting? Animal obsessed kiddos will love practicing simple addition and subtraction story problems to 20 (missing addends in all positions) with this wild safari animal themed set. These task cards work well for first grade math stations, small groups, or even homework. I have also used these during an end of year Jungle or Zoo themed day :)

Keep the learning going with Mini Word Problem Booklets. Students can use the jungle themed images as inspiration for writing their own word problems. Fill in the blank options are also included to help support early writers. Students can then solve their own problems or take turns with a partner.

This Safari Story Problem Activity includes:

✅ 12 Colorful 1st Grade Addition and Subtraction Word Problem Cards (for centers)

✅ Recording Sheets (color & blackline)

✅ 2 Worksheet pages for homework or quizzes (using the same addition and subtraction word problems as reinforcement)

✅ Answer Keys for easy correcting

✅ Mini Word Problem Booklets for open ended problem solving
