Math Mystery: Case of the Missing Snow People
This product features five complex multi-step word problems. I created this to help students with their close reading of multi-step word problems. To successfully solve most of the problems, students will need to closely read and use word problem strategies such as Read-Draw-Write (RDW) or C.U.B.E.S.
These were specially designed to illustrate the importance of taking your time with word problems, using a highly engaging format.
This packet would be great as an enrichment for high 4th graders, a supplement for 5th graders, an engaging activity for fast finishers, and Gifted-Talented classrooms. I originally creating this as a challenge activity for my 4th grade high math skills group. It took most of my students 60 minutes to complete the mystery (two 30-minute class sessions).
Each clue requires students to closely pay attention to key word problem words such as: more than, more, less, fewer, all together, each, combined, double, times as many, twice as many
