This is a basic subtraction word problem worksheet. Students solve each word problem, and then classify it as a "take-away" or "comparing" problem. This builds understanding of subtraction and when it is used.
Have your students work in pairs so that each problem can be discussed and classified.
At the end, after students solve the given problems, they are asked to create 2 additional word problems and solve them.
This document can be easily modified to meet the interests and needs of your students.
Suggestion: Replace the names to include your student names for added personalization!
Bonus: Question #15 infuses a bit of nutrition, too!
