This is a fun activity that gets students working together and excited to practice solving one-step equations! Students won't mind practicing word problems with this group activity.
In this activity, students are grouped in fours. Each student takes a card, and solves the word problem on the card. When all students in the group have their answers, they add them up, getting a group sum. Then, the group checks their sum with the teacher. If they are correct, they work on the next set of cards, if not, they work together to see where or which student in the group went wrong. This activity encourages peer tutoring.
There are eight sets of cards and four problems are in each set. Students will read the word problem, write an equation, and solve the equation.
Make sure these problems are appropriate for your students - download the preview to see problem examples.
This could be used at the end of a lesson to check for understanding, or as a review before an assessment. This could be turned into a game - the first group to finish all of the cards wins!
