A teacher-facilitated activity that teaches students to answer the right question when solving word problems.
This activity teaches students to answer the question that the problem asks instead of merely getting answer and saying, “”Yay! I’m done!””
8 problems include whole numbers, all operations, and are one-, two-, or multi-step.
Use with the whole class, in guided math, with small groups, or in tutoring or intervention.
This activity includes clear and concise teacher directions, a detailed answer key, and conversation starters that give students what they need to have meaningful academic discussions.
