My students seem to struggle with road trip word problems. You know the ones, the ones that say a person is going to travel so far in 3 days. On day one, this distance, the next day this distance, so how much the last day? Well, I wanted a fun twist on this type of word problem.
There are THREE options provided in this resource. Gradual release or differentiated instruction, depends on your point of view.
This resource goes from having students roll dice to determine the options, to being able to determine their route! Great way to help students see math in real world applications.
Extensions and "road blocks" are a part of this fun activity.
