Are your students struggling with multiplication or word problems? I created these word problem mats for my students to practice their math and conquer their word problem fears!
What better way than on a nature walk? These word problems are perfect to use anytime of the year. This packet includes 1 set of 10 different multiplication word problems. For this set I focused on some of the 'tricky' problems for my students, such as 6's, 7's, and 8's with a few easier ones thrown in the mix. Each mat is divided into sections, a section for the problem, one to draw the groups, another to draw an array, a place for a repeated addition equation, and lastly for the answer and regular equation.
You can use this many ways! You can use them in small groups, center work, review, or independent work! Laminate or put in plastic sleeves to use over and over. Have a few early finishers? In the end of the packet I have included 2 pages for students to create their own problems for a friend.
Need a printer friendly version? Not a problem! I have included a color version as well as an ink friendly version!
