Description

Help your students get to know each other (and practice a little addition & subtraction) with these fun math mystery phrases. Included in this pack are 6 “Find a Classmate Who...” question sheets, 6 corresponding “Find a Classmate Who...” answer sheets & full answer keys. The question sheets are differentiated as follows:

* “Find a Classmate Who...” #1 – Double-digit addition & subtraction questions without regrouping.

* “Find a Classmate Who...” #2 – Double-digit addition & subtraction questions with regrouping.

* “Find a Classmate Who...” #3 – Double-digit addition & subtraction questions with & without regrouping.

* “Find a Classmate Who...” #4 – Triple-digit addition & subtraction questions without regrouping.

* “Find a Classmate Who...” #5 – Triple-digit addition & subtraction questions with regrouping.

* “Find a Classmate Who...” #6 – Triple-digit addition & subtraction questions with & without regrouping.

To complete the activity, provide students with the question sheet and corresponding answer sheet that fits their ability level. Students are to answer the addition & subtraction questions on the question sheet. They then place the letter beside each question on the line with the correct answer for that question found on the corresponding answer sheet. Some letters may occur more than once in the answer and some may not appear at all. If done correctly, three classmate descriptions will be revealed on the answer sheet. Students must then find three different classmates to match each of the descriptions and record their names.

**The mystery phrases will only be correctly revealed if students are using the question & answer sheet of the same number**

*The classmate descriptions are meant to be fairly general so they will *hopefully* fit most classrooms. Some descriptions included are:

*Find a classmate who…

- was born in May or December.

- can do a cartwheel.

- has more than one sibling.

- has never been on an airplane.

- wants to be a doctor.

- is wearing brand new shoes.

- can play an instrument.

- has never eaten a mango.

…& more!

These worksheets make for a great back to school activity! They could be placed in a beginning of the year math center or provided to students for independent addition & subtraction practice.
