One of the biggest challenges for my students right now is choosing the correct (and easiest) operation in a word problem. Multi-step word problems in particular!
This set of task cards helps students get some good ol' fashioned practice with multi-step, multi-operational word problems...and of course, they are Groundhog Day themed (but, because they are so cute, they can be used at any time of year!!
Included are 10 task cards, each with a word problem that asks student to think deeply about the operation(s) needed to solve. Using division, subtraction, multiplication, and addition, students will find the answer, and write this on their recording sheet.
Addition and subtraction are up to the hundreds place.
Multiplication is up to 'double digit times double digit.'
Division is up to 'triple digit divided by single digit.'
Thanks for looking!!
