These higher order thinking math tasks for first grade math are great to get your students applying the skills they have learned in math class.

These higher level thinking type of problems encourage students to work together and have great discussions surrounding the answers. They provide students with an alternate way to show what they have learned and also allow students to use their skills in real life situations.

This common core aligned unit includes 8 different tasks as well as 8 "challenge tasks" for each of the following categories:

Number Sense

Addition

Subtraction

Place Value

Geometry & Measurement

Time & Money

The tasks vary in type as some are multi-step, real-life story problems. Others require students to show their learning by creating something. And still others require students to use many of the math skills they have learned so far to analyze and synthesize a problem to get the best answer.

ALL of the tasks require students to explain their reasoning and encourage talking through problems to create discussion!

Each task is posed in 3 different ways:

- PRINTABLE form so students can work independently and show their work

- GUIDED PRINTABLE form - walks students through certain tasks if they need some guidance

- TASK CARD - these are great for laminating and passing out to pairs or groups

Enjoy,

Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Solve word problems that call for addition of three whole numbers whose sum is less than or equal to 20, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract. If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition.)
Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.
Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps.
