This is a packet of 4 excellent word problem activities, my first installment of several "Foodie Math" sets. Students solve real life word problems in which they interpret charts, select problem solving strategies, add, and subtract.
4th Grade Common Core standards drove the creation of these activities. The standards addressed are
4.NBT.3 & 4
In "Planning a Menu with a Budget in Mind" students use real grocery ads to plan out different menus, staying within a set budget.
In "A Busy Baking Schedule" students solve problems of elapsed time in the kitchen.
In "Calorie Counter" students obtain data from a chart in order to solve multi-step problems about the calories in foods, using both addition and subtraction.
Finally, "At the Bake Sale" has students rounding to different place values before solving word problems involving large numbers and money amounts.
Each of these activities is relatable to students, comes with a teacher's guide, and is complete with an answer key. Your students will love these tasty word problems.
