Solving addition and subtraction word problems using part-part-whole bar models is the focus of these task cards. Each task card has a word problem requiring single- or double-digit addition or subtraction to find the missing addend, sum, or difference.
Many students have difficulty determining which operation to use or what the problem is really asking them to find. To help develop these skills, each task card includes a bar model as a guide. The bar models on the cards near the end of the set provide less information than those at the beginning and require students to figure out where the numbers should be placed themselves.
Includes recording sheet, answer key, and task cards in both full color and black & white versions.
