Product Description
In this activity, students perform a close reading of 16 word problems to determine if they must multiply or divide to correctly solve. I have my students circle the important numbers and key words, and then draw a quick model/visual to help them figure out whether they are multiplying or dividing. Students will cut and sort their word problems on a two-column chart. I usually just have them fold a piece of construction paper and make a T-chart (multiplication word problems on one side, division on the other). At the end of the sort, students can choose 5 problems to complete. This is great way to help students practice figuring out whether they are multiplying or dividing to solve 5th grade word problems.
