This product features 12 subtraction word problems on a 2x3 grid and a recording sheet for students to solve the problems and record their answers. In my own classroom, I have printed out 2 copies of the document.
In class, pass out the cards to students. They walk around and find the other student who has the same card number as them. The pair sits down together and solves the problem on their recording sheet. Repeat and share when finished.
I have found that it turns somewhat monotonous word problem practice into an engaging, fun activity.
