These 24 sports themed addition and subtraction task cards would be great for math work stations or math centers. Many of the word problems include facts and world records about current sports stars to help keep students motivated and engaged. The majority of the cards have 3-digit numbers with some 2-digit and 4-digit numbers.
An activity my students LOVE is a Sports Math digital worksheet they completed in Google Classroom. At first glance, the activity looks like nothing more than a basic worksheet, and it can certainly be used as that. What made this awesome for my students was that it includes a link to a brief sports clip for each word problem. Students could click the link and actually see the event mentioned in the word problem. I included a few blasts from the past, as well as several modern day sporting events. I also made sure to include a variety of sports to keep everyone’s interest. Some of the word problems are a bit challenging. I designed them for my fourth graders, so they would definitely be useful in fifth grade and possible for third grade with a little guidance on a few of the decimal problems.
