Product Description
This is an integrated, widely differentiated math and reading activity, inspired by Pablo Picasso’s life and artwork. Children read interesting facts about Picasso, problem-solve, and depict the important numbers using hundreds, tens, and ones cubes. Three differentiated levels are provided from basic place value representation to complex problem-solving in order to solve a problem and discover and depict the answer. Everything you need is included. Children’s artwork is added to demonstrate reading comprehension. Your students will learn about this great artist while deepening their understanding of place value! Common Core aligned!

This activity is part of a Pablo Picasso Artist Study, which is a portion of our complete Artist Biography Unit.

Represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction.
CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.A.1 Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.1
CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.A.2 Solve word problems that call for addition of three whole numbers whose sum is less than or equal to 20, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Understand place value.
CCSS.Math.Content.1.NBT.B.2 Understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones. Understand the following as special cases:
CCSS.Math.Content.1.NBT.B.2a 10 can be thought of as a bundle of ten ones — called a “ten.”
CCSS.Math.Content.1.NBT.B.2b The numbers from 11 to 19 are composed of a ten and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
CCSS.Math.Content.1.NBT.B.2c The numbers 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 refer to one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine tens (and 0 ones).
CCSS Informational Reading 7. Use the illustrations and details in a text to describe its key ideas.
CCSS Foundational Reading 4. Read with sufficient accuracy and fluency to support comprehension.
Represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction.
CCSS.Math.Content.2.OA.A.1 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.1
Use place value understanding and properties of operations to add and subtract.
CCSS.Math.Content.2.NBT.B.5 Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
CCSS.Math.Content.2.NBT.B.6 Add up to four two-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.
CCSS.Math.Content.2.NBT.B.7 Add and subtract within 1000, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method. Understand that in adding or subtracting three-digit numbers, one adds or subtracts hundreds and hundreds, tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose or decompose tens or hundreds.
CCSS Informational Reading 4. Determine the meaning of words and phrases in a text relevant to a grade 2 topic or subject area.
CCSS Informational Reading 7. Explain how specific images (e.g., a diagram showing how a machine works) contribute to and clarify text.
