In this activity, students will try to figure out what is wrong with each word problem and then fix it to make it correct. There are multiple ways to fix each problem.
I use this with my first graders needing a challenge, as it gives them the opportunity to think critically and analyze a variety of word problems.
Please download my preview to get a peek at what's included. You'll find the following in this set:
