Looking for Test Prep Word Problems? Getting ready for a state test? I have included my first 41 word problems along with 33 additional animal safari based questions. These 77 word problems are fun and yet challenging. The animal safari questions are based on true facts. I researched all sorts of data to make them accurate. These problems are all common core aligned.
They will: Build vocabulary
Practice Chart Reading
Practice solving multi-step problems
Finding the area
Finding the volume
Add and Subtract decimals
Find mean, median, mode and range.
I designed these word problems for my own 5th graders to give them practice and help get them ready for our state testing. They can be used with 6th graders too. We used these from day 1 of school. The students were so used to multi-step math problems, that they had no anxiety when our state tests came.
These are perfect Back-To-School questions to get your 5th or 6th graders already practicing Multi-Step Problems.
I use it as a bell ringer, working on one problem a day. First, I give students about 5-10 minutes to solve the problem itself. Then, we go over it together. Sometimes I rearrange the order of questions, depending on the skills of my students.
They can be practiced over and over again until students feel comfortable with the skills.
