### Description

This set of 12 mixed operation task cards (includes all 4 operations as well as money and other CCSS related topics) with Earth Day word problems reflects the Common Core State Standards for grades 3, 4, and 5 and all have a festive environmental math theme--from recycling to saving electricity to planting trees--and **NOW WITH DIGITAL ACCESS!**

**NOTE: This is one of 8 sets included in my seasonal word problem bundle!**

**Problems begin at an end of year third grade level and move through 4th and 5th grade level expectations. Problems are included in FOUR formats:**

- with multiple copies on a page to be cut out and glued into a math journal

- on reproducible pages to use as practice sheets (4 problems per page)

- on full sheet pages that give workspace for one problem, a place for students to write matching equations, and a lined area for students to explain their work—an important part of the CCSS!

**AND NOW WITH DIGITAL SLIDES!**

Answers are included as is are three rubrics to use to help in scoring the Standards for Mathematical Practice!

**All of these problems have "EXTRA" parts to make differentiation easy--so it's really 24 problems in all!**

**Why did I write these?**

Over the years I have noticed that students tend to look for routine in math class. If it’s a division unit, they will divide any two numbers they find! If it’s a subtraction unit, they try to regroup everything!

For that reason, I try hard to sprinkle in a variety of problems all year that require students to think and apply what they have learned—perhaps draw a picture or make a table to help . . . but, most importantly, to THINK about math. I hope you find these useful!

**I hope you find uses for all four versions of the problems…perhaps using a page or two from each as you see fit. You can use this to teach a mini unit on multi-step problems or simply use them throughout the year to improve problem solving!**

These would be a great way to get students into problem solving and the Standards for Mathematical Practice
