Engage your students with Solve & Draw resources! With Fraction Word Problem Task Cards, students solve the Fraction word problems and add to the drawings based on their answers.
Fraction Word Problems Solve & Draw Task Cards are a no-prep way to make fraction review work and practice more engaging. These are also designed to provide practice of reading math directions and breaking down multi-step word problems. These are intended to be a challenge or review activity as students will need to understand fraction concepts and calculation skills to complete these task cards.
How Solve & Draw Task Cards Work:
Students read the word problem, determine the steps they need to take, and solve the fraction calculations. Then, there are two related math problems, often requiring critical thinking and making connections, that will prompt them to add specific objects to the drawing. To keep them guessing, each problem may have one correct drawing prompt, two, or none.
Drawing is no-prep because it can be done with a pencil. You may choose to allow colored pencils, crayons, or markers but they are not required. This works well as a homework option for families who may not have those supplies to offer.
Three drawings are included, each with 8 associated task cards (sea creature from the correct drawing is on each numbered task card). Each task card contains three related math problems.
Task cards are included in both color and black-and-white. An answer sheet with workspace is provided and may be copied on to the back of the drawing or separately. You may also choose to print copies of the task cards in black-and-white, especially for students needing support, and allowing students to complete the work on the task cards.
Drawing prompts require a student to use multiple skills:
• Fraction calculations (all operations)
• Comparing and reducing fractions
• Reading word problems carefully and determining the steps and calculations needed to solve
• Making math connections
• Independently using math vocabulary
• Reading directions accurately
