PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Math Critical Thinking Problems ~ Word Problems ~ 80 Word Problems requiring critical thinking ~ Spring theme

Fill-in-the-Blank math word problems are problem solving, operations, and critical thinking all rolled into one.

There are 80 problems included, with one full set in color and one full set in black and white.

Fill-in-the-blank word problems are word problems with missing numbers. Instead of a number, there is a blank.
Students have to think critically before filling in the blank with a number, asking themselves, "Does this number make sense?"

Here is a fill-in-the-blank example:
Caitlyn has ___ red beads and ___ blue beads. How many more blue beads does Caitlyn have than red beads?

Students have to think critically before just plugging in numbers because it says that Caitlyn has MORE blue beads than red beads. So a number for the blue beads has to be higher than the number for the red beads.
It forces students to think critically, whether they want to or not.

After filling in the blanks, I have my students solve the problem.

I love fill-in-the-blank problems, and I hope you will too!
