5.NBT.5 Extension: Creating Civil War Word Problems

5.NBT.5 Extension: Creating Civil War Word Problems
Product Description
In this interdisciplinary activity, students will research data from the Civil War and create a word problem where they must multiply 2-digit numbers by 3-digit numbers. Students must solve the problem using two multiplication strategies (standard algorithm, area model, partial product, etc.).

I used this activity for my students who met proficiency on the pre-test. They researched and created word problems, and then the class solved the word problems at the end of the unit. My students LOVED this activity!
