This product features 12 multiple choice addition word problems on a 2x3 grid and a recording sheet for students to solve the problems and record their answers. In my own classroom, I have printed out 2 copies of the document.
In class, pass out the cards to students. They walk around and find the other student who has the same card number as them. The pair sits down together and solves the problem on the recording sheet. Repeat and share when finished.
I have found that it turns somewhat monotonous word problem practice into an engaging, fun activity.

This activity is aligned with the 3rd Grade CC Objective:
CCSS.Math.Content.3.NBT.A.2 Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
Since the objective is not listed on the activity, it could easily be used in an accelerated 2nd grade class, as well as review in a 4th grade class.
