A collection of 12 multiplicative comparison word problems aligned to the common core standard 4. OA.1. It can be used as an enrichment activity for 3rd grade, on level activity for 4th grade, or additional support for 5th grade.
You can easily introduce algebra (using a variable to represent missing information) for the word problems. The short response questions have an algebra element included and vary in difficulty. The questions can be used as test prep or extra practice after studying the standard.
This pack includes:
*12 word problems (4 of each type of comparative problems: unknown product; group size unknown; number of groups unknown) on full size color posters (for classroom displays or problem of the day) AND half sheets in black and white (which can be used in centers or as task cards)
*a recording sheet for the 12 problems
*3 short response questions (which incorporate algebra, multiplication, and a written response)
*answer keys for everything
Please be sure to ask any and all questions before purchasing this item! Thank you :)
