In this activity, students select an equation and create a story surrounding that equation. The directions are very simple (no specific length/grammar/planning requirements), as I really wanted the students to get creative and play around with genre and narrative structure in a low stakes manner. A sample story is on the main page to help students get the gist of the activity.
I have included equations to be cut out for each of the following skills.
- Addition/Subtraction with Decimals
- Division w/out Remainders
- Division w/ Remainders
I created this activity for early finishers to work on during my writing block, though I also feel it would work well during the math block as a center or lesson extension.
No answer key/rubric is provided with this sheet. I have attached it as a PDF, but I have also included the google docs link at the bottom of the PDF incase you would like to create your own copy and edit it to fit your needs.
Feel free to share with friends/teammates if you purchase!
