When many people think of classroom transformations, they think:

“This would take me hours to set up.”

“This is going to cost so much money.”

“This looks so overwhelming.”

“I could never do this!”

What if I told you classroom transformations could be EASY to set up, FUN to implement, and STRESS-FREE?

If you're looking for ways to make more meaningful connections to math in the real world, this is the activity for you! Students will embark upon a day in a "pet hospital" as a vet while practicing this difficult math concept at the same time. 2 step word problems can be difficult for third graders and this activity is great practice.

Let's Start with the Basics...What is a Classroom Transformation?

A room transformation changes your room into a certain setting or theme to engage students in their own learning with rigorous content.

Classroom transformations are possible in EVERY classroom. You don’t have to spend hours of your time setting up a room transformation or spend lots of money to make it SO MUCH FUN!

SKILLS INCLUDED:

  • multi-digit addition and subtraction multi-step word problems
  • multi-step multiplication and division word problems
  • multi-step word problems

2 Versions:

  • Version 1: Easy

Every problem has only 2 steps to solve. This is a great version for kids that are just beginning multi-step word problems.

  • Version 2: Hard

There are some easy problems, medium problems, and hard problems included in this room transformation. There is a wide variation of problems included for differentiation. Some problems are 2 step, 3 step, and 4 step word problems. This set is great for kids who already have experience with multi-step word problems.

HOW TO USE:

Step 1: Tell your grade 3 class that they are animal doctors today and will practice multi-step word problems. Students solve math challenges set up around the room. They can be completed in any order and you can choose how many challenges students complete or what time frame they have to meet YOUR needs.

Set-up is quick and easy. Simply print the 10 posters, the math worksheets, and a recording sheet for each student. Place them around your room and you’re ready to begin! Additional door décor, printable hats, name tags, admission tickets, a banner, and more are included if you want to use them!

Step 2: Let third graders move around the room and solve each challenge. Each time students solve a math challenge, they go to the teacher to get it checked. Students can work independently, in partners, or in groups. Your choice.

Step 3: When 3rd grade students finish all ten challenges (or however many you assign), they win! You can give them the certificate of completion included and the coloring page. I also reward my students with a cool eraser at the end.

Step 4 (OPTIONAL Fast Finisher Activity): Most of the time, there are early finishers. These kiddos get to go around the room and learn fun facts about the theme of the day! No one is ever bored. Choose from 3 different fun fact versions.

  • Digital Scavenger Hunt: Let students "find" the facts on Google Slides
  • Printable Fact Posters: Hang fact posters around the room for students to find
  • QR Codes: Students scan facts on an iPad or similar device to read fun facts

ALL QUESTIONS ARE 100% EDITABLE

The PRINT version of the challenges is fully customizable! There are 3 versions included.

  1. Premade Version: The challenges are pre-made for you and are ready to print and go!
  2. 100% Editable Version: The challenges are pre-made for you but you can edit any text on the page! Change the title, the instructions, or the questions so they work best for your classroom.
  3. Blank / Create Your Own Content Version: Each challenge is blank and fully customizable. You can type anything you'd like on each page.

Please note: The digital version and clipart is not editable due to copyright laws.

How Does a Digital Classroom Transformation Work?

Then, assign your students the Google Slides™ activities that come with this digital classroom transformation. Each digital room transformation is interactive and has movable pieces for students to enjoy playing with. Every activity can be modified for what works best in your virtual classroom. A digital cover page, digital recording sheet, 10 digital challenges, and a digital certificate are included in the Google Slides file.

Finally, as a digital reward, students are invited to play the self-checking game that shows them fun facts about pets. It's engaging, interactive, and a great way to motivate students throughout the digital room transformation while completing distance learning.
