Students will learn a new, "weird and wonderful" word while practicing dividing decimals by whole numbers (with a few multiplication problems sprinkled in for review!). After using the key to figure out what the "weird and wonderful" word is, students will write their own word problem using the new word in the correct context!
Teacher Tip: Pull from the quality student-written word problems to have students practice writing equations with a letter for the unknown! My students love seeing their word problems used in class!
Your students will have a blast with this activity, and the new word is oh so silly!!
