You need to have your students practice word problems, but you also want to teach Social Studies.
You can do both!
These rigorous Math word problems are embedded in the context of Paul Revere's Ride. Students use math to understand the details of Paul Revere's accomplishment in riding through the night. They measure, create timelines and do Grade 4/5-appropriate math computations.
This is a fantastic in-class exercise that enlivens Math class---or Social Studies class---your choice! It also makes a great vacation packet for Math practice.
