Friends~This was a huge hit in my classroom. We have been working on problem solving with word problems all year. I have been gradually making them more challenging as we go but this activity really pushed my kiddos and got them thinking. I was so happy to see them really applying the strategies I have taught in class and collaborating with each other to find a solution.
Included in this file you will find the following:
2 different video links to explain how I have taught problem solving and also a bonus for double digit subtraction.
A QR code mini poster for each video.
Teacher and student direction sheets.
Links to blog posts that will allow you to see this product in action in my classroom.
A problem solving scavenger hunt response sheet.
A writing prompt with space for students to show their strategies.
24 word problems of varying levels to allow for differentiation in the classroom and in groups.
Your kiddos will LOVE this activity and you will LOVE seeing them work to solve problems as a team!
