A small group card sort to tell the difference between one-step problems and two-step problems (addition and subtraction only).
Students learn to tell the difference between one-step and two-step addition and subtraction problems by sorting and then solving the problems.
By comparing the two kinds of problems, they learn to recognise the difference in the structure of a one-step problem vs. a two-step problem.
8 problems to sort and a recording sheet.
Use in small groups, during guided maths, 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.
