Do you ever get tired of regular task cards? Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the engagement and movement that task cards call for, but sometimes, task cards can be redundant and require low levels of thinking and problem solving.
These task cards are perfect to make learners THINK about strip diagrams. It exposes the kiddos to more than just the standard "Part, Part, Whole" strip diagram. In each of these questions, learners will have to think outside of the box to break down each part of the strip diagram and give each part (or whole) meaning.
There are 4 task cards that take learning to the next level asking learners to apply their knowledge and CREATE a strip diagram to represent word problems.
When using this with my 3rd graders, it opened up the opportunity to have a RICH Math Discussion (my favorite thing to do during our Math Block!) about making MEANING of problems as we solve them.
