PDF | 8 pages|Grades: 5 - 7

A small group activity focused on choosing the right operation to solve one-step problems with decimals.

In small groups, students read a problem card and secretly write the operation on a whiteboard. Then ‘1-2-3-Show!’ They show their operations and discuss why they are correct. After deciding the operation for each problem, students draw a picture of their thinking about the problem and work together to solve it.

8 problems on cards and a problem-solving recording sheet

Use in small groups, during guided math, during tutoring or intervention and in centres.

This activity includes clear and concise teacher directions, problems on cards, a recording sheet and conversation starters that give students what they need to have meaningful academic discussions.
