This unit is used to teach students how to practice solving multi-step word problems. This is one of the TOUGHEST concepts we cover in third grade and the more practice they can get, the better!
-An interactive cut and glue mini-lesson on multi-step word problems
-10 multi-step word problem worksheets
-2 multi-step word problem games
Game #1: Traffic Problems
You are trying to get to the football stadium across town! The problem is...TRAFFIC! Everyone puts their car at the start and each time they solve a multi-step word problem, they get to randomly pick up a traffic light card. If they get a red light, they do not get to move forward. If they get a yellow light, they get to move forward one space. If they get a green light, they get to move forward 2 spaces. The first person to make it through all of the roads to the football stadium wins the game! There are also chance cards thrown in to spice up the game! They may help the player or send them backwards! Answer key included.
Game #2:Lost in the Woods
Oh no! All of the students got lost in the woods. Each kid needs to find the sign that will lead them back home correctly. When you solve each multi-step word problem, you will know which sign to match each kid with. Answer key included. Great matching or partner game!
It's perfect for students in third grade or need remediation in fourth grade.
