Product Description
Working through word problems can be difficult for many students.

Instead of teaching “key words”, which can be misleading, helping students understand the action in the problem will give them a better idea of which operation to use to solve.
In this activity, students work in pairs or small groups to act out a math problem. Similar to reader’s theater, you can allow students to use simple props to liven up the activity! Students will act out the problem and write a number sentence that could be used to find the solution.

Included in your purchase are the following:
*a customizable PowerPoint with directions and 6 word problems, including all 4 operations
*a customizable worksheet for independent practice after the activity
*a customizable rubric to evaluate the performances
