These Easter Story Problems were a hit in my mathematics classroom. Each silly prompt will require students to think critically about the details provided and make decisions on what data is needed and what mathematically needs to be done to solve the problem.
These story problems are a great way to keep the fun in Easter but still promote critical thinking. All items are fully editable!
This item is included in the Math Story Problems Bundle for Middle School. If you purchased the bundle, you will not need to purchase this item.
Here are some sample problems:
1. The Easter Bunny stole 34 carrots from Shawn’s house, 53 carrots from Eric’s house, 39 carrots from Ryan’s house, and 98 carrots from Lane’s house. After feeling guilty about the theft, he decided to return Eric’s carrots to his house. How many did he end up stealing?
2. It took James 45 minutes a day for 9 days to eat his chocolate bunny. How much time total did he spend eating the chocolate bunny?
3. Wendy wanted her parents to buy her bubbles for Easter. Not only did she want bubbles, but she wanted the kind that make the biggest bubbles possible. While her parents were at the store, they found that one bottle could make bubbles up to 24 inches. Another bottle can make bubbles up to 1 foot 8 inches. Another bottle could make bubbles up to 2 feet 3 inches. What is the average size of the biggest bubbles?
