Common Core friendly fraction word problems. *You will just need to change the names of the players to make the word problems current. These were made for the Ravens vs 49ers Super Bowl.
The word problems are leveled by color to help differentiate.
I had kids work with a partner to solve these word problems. I was able to differentiate by cutting up and putting the word problems in an envelope. I gave the kids either a blue or green envelope based on their level. They then picked a word problem out of the envelope one at a time and had to use a picture to show how they solved the problem.
