Story Problem Task Cards

These 24 task cards each contain one story problem, and address the following CCSS for grades 1 – 3: 1.NBT.C.6, 2.NBT.B.5, and 3.NBT.A.2.

Students will practice using strategies based on the relationship between addition and subtraction to solve story problems. These cards will help students discover three different approaches to the same set of facts. Each card is numbered allowing students to record their answers on a student answer sheet (included). The answer sheet provides a box for students to draw a picture to show their work. A teacher answer key (also included), gives one possible solution for each problem.

There are three task cards that share the same story (identified by the same drawing), creating a set. These sets provide three different ways to solve the same story problem. Sets can be used one at a time, (for example cards 1 – 3), or mixed up, depending on your students’ needs. These can be used individually, in small groups, or in centers.


Print task cards, and cut along dotted lines. I recommend using card stock and laminating each card for reuse. Print student answer sheets - they can be printed on both sides of a sheet of paper.
