I made this activity to follow up with my basic one I have created containing "10 more/less, 100 more/less". I found as the year went on, many of my students mastered that version, so I wanted to challenge them more! So this is similar concept, but utilizes larger numbers into the 1000's, and ask students to find "50 more", "100 less", "250 more", "350 less", "1,200 more", and "500" less. I was tickled to see my kiddos accept this challenge and LOVE it! My Gifted and Talented students were all about it; they asked me to make more...so I am in the process of doing so! Ha! You will see the numbers I have them using are pretty complex. This activity not only challenges, but helps my students with not only their number sense, but addition and subtraction as well. It's a great tool to use to really have the kiddos think in terms of increasing by a set amount, as well as decreasing. I have included 2 different worksheets, that offer a variety of numbers up to the from the 800's to 4000's. These worksheets you can utilize whole group, small group, or independently depending on the needs of your kids. Hope you enjoy!! Please note: I have also provided an "answer key".
