The structure "hot potato" is used to encourage equal participation within partner work. We use erasable colored pencils; each partner has a different color. Then they pass the paper back and fourth, every step, within EACH problem. See our instagram @twoteachersinfifth to see a video of this resource in action with our class.
Have students roll a dice to fill in the numbers, or fill them in before you copy. We use this resource multiple times within our unit, so it is used as a template.
You should print, and then copy DOUBLE SIDED when using this resource, if you want to use both pages.
Your students will really love this engaging structure! Enjoy! :)
