How can you increase your students’ number sense and build their crucial understanding of part-part-whole relationships? Use these hands-on, fun sorting activities! You’ll then be able to guide students to write equations and even solve comparison word problems using their knowledge of part-part-whole!

This resource includes:

  • Six different sets of part-part-whole boxes. Each set is carefully designed so that your students can sort it five different ways!
  • Ten sort pages: one specific page to match each of the six sets of part-part-whole boxes, plus four sorts that can be used with every set. (These ten sort pages give you up to 30 different sorts!)
  • Four pages onto which students can glue part-part-whole boxes from any set and then write the four (or eight!) equations that match.
  • Twelve print-and-go equation pages that eliminate the cutting – students simply write the equations!
  • Two Teacher’s Note pages that help you teach your students how to use part-part-whole boxes to understand and solve comparison word problems.
  • Five student display pages that model using part-part-whole boxes to solve word problems.
  • Three pages of comparison word problems for students to solve using their new strategy.
  • Complete answer keys for all print-and-go pages!

These pages will provide opportunities for direct instruction, independent work, and center or station work for weeks!

Looking for easier Part-Part-Whole activities? Try these Part-Part-Whole Number Sense and Fact Fluency Activities that use facts to 20!

When your students are ready, Addition and Subtraction Comparing Word Problems are the next step! These word problems will be the perfect way for your students to practice what they’ve learned about using part-part-whole boxes to solve comparison problems. Your students can also solve these Math Story Problems: Two Digit Addition and Subtraction.

Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 + ? = 11, 5 = â–Ż - 3, 6 + 6 = â–Ż.
Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.
Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract. If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition.)
