March in Houston means it is Rodeo time! This math activity is perfect for Go Texan day!
This FREEBIE includes 6 multiplication and division number stories with a Houston Rodeo theme! The problem solving method is adapted from Everyday Math's curriculum. Each problem asks the students to find the "unknown" and label it with a letter. Then students are asked to fill in a graphic organizer. Students will then write a number sentence and solve.
Activity Idea: Have the students solve the problems independently. Play some country music and allow the kids to walk around with their completed problems. When you stop the music, have them partner up and check over each other's work. Play the music again and repeat until all the problems have been checked and corrected.
