This product includes 3 pages of activities for students to complete. In the first two pages, students have to create their own equation (one for addition and then one for subtraction). They then have to explain how they solved their equation in writing and then draw a picture. On the last page of this product, students have to create their own word problem and then explain their thinking.
This is meant to correlate with 2nd grade standard 2.NBT.9 Explain why addition and subtraction strategies work, using place value and the properties of operations.
Skills this helps with:
-Students being able to express their reasoning for using specific strategies when adding and subtracting
-Students apply their knowledge of place value and properties of operations to explain why addition and subtraction strategies work
-Students support their explanations with written word & drawings
- Students using procedural language to justify an answer
I hope this works well for you class :)
