This is a subtraction story board activity based on The Cat in the Hat which includes a lesson plan using the math workshop model with relevant Common Core Standards and Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills Standards which can be copied and pasted into the lesson plan. The materials also include a color storyboard, color props cutout images and a powerpoint for introducing the activity during the opening session. Students create their own subtraction stories and represent their story numerically in equation form after cutting and pasting their images. They then tell their story to the group or class. This is a useful activity for developing problem-solving strategies in primary grades.
