I've found my fourth graders really love creating word problems. However, they have a very difficult time getting started. The kids roll standard and D10 number cubes and use the direction cards to build their word problem from the operation all the way to how many people are in their problem. It is a fantastic activity. This activity would be appropriate for 3rd, 4th, or 5th Graders, with just a few modifications for the 3rd and 4th graders.
When I did this activity with my GT kids, they even wanted to add extra information to their problems to trick each other. It's a great activity for whole group, small group, or stations.
I hope you enjoy! Check out my other math products:
