This is a problem solving math worksheet for addition and subtraction using an Egytian theme. I was asked to do a model lesson for a first grade teacher who worked with gifted students and taught everything thematically. Her theme at the time was Egypt. This is what I designed to go with her theme and challenge her gifted students.
This activity incorporates the use of the Egyptian number system to solve the question at the bottom, although that could be optional. There are two pages - one without boxes around each question, the other with the boxes depending on the comfort level of your students.
NOTE: The two pages problem pages are legal sized! :)
