### Description

This set of 20 animal word problem task cards supports many features of the Common Core State Standards. Pages can be printed, cut into quadrants, and laminated to use as task cards (color version) or can be copied and cut apart to use in math journals. Pages are included in color AND with white background for easy copying. There is also a blank “work sheet” where students can show their work if you use these as task cards.

Problems are all based on high interest, "amazing" animal facts. Note that students are encouraged to write coordinating “number sentences” to demonstrate complete understanding of the operations used. It is recommended that you teach multiple ways to show a variable…an empty box, a question mark, and letters as typically seen in algebra. They can do it!

The Common Core clearly states that students should be able to solve a variety of real-world math problems where the “variable” moves to different locations in the number sentence. Refer to pages 88 and 89 (Tables 1 and 2) for further clarification. All four operations are used with numbers of varying sizes and even different units of measure.
