This product features 24 word problems (12 multiplication and 12 division) on a 2x3 grid. In my own classroom, I have printed 2 copies of the document out, and numbered them 1-12 on the back.
This product is a Word document, so it can be edited and changed to fit your classroom needs.
The first 2 pages are the division problems, and the last 2 pages are the multiplication problems. You could give them out separately or mix them in together for more of a challenge.
In class, pass out the cards to students. They walk around and find the other student who has the same card number as them. The pair sits down together and solves the problem. Repeat and share when finished.
I have found that it turns somewhat monotonous word problem practice into an engaging, fun activity.
* This is not a bundle of my other two items- Multiplication Word Problems and Division Word Problems. These are different sets of word problems.

This activity is aligned with the 3rd Grade CC Objective:
CCSS.Math.Content.3.OA.A.3 Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
and the 4th Grade CC Objective:
CCSS.Math.Content.4.OA.A.2 Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
