This activity provides students with much-needed practice in abstract thinking. Students work in small groups to organize information in a word problem with the end goal of setting up an equation to represent the problem. This download includes:
*Full instructions on how to run the activity.
*A graphic organizer to copy for student use.
*Word problems to place at each center for groups to work on together.
*A key of what the finished graphic organizer should look like.
