Mixed Addition Word Problems Solve & Draw Task Cards are a no-prep way to make Mixed Addition review work or practice more engaging. These are also designed to provide practice of reading math directions and breaking down one-step and multi-step word problems. These are intended to be a challenge or review activity.
How Solve & Draw Task Cards Work:
Students read the word problem, determine the steps they need to take, and solve the mixed addition 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 can be done with a pencil. You may choose to allow colored pencils, crayons, or markers but they are not required.
Three drawings are included, each with 8 associated task cards (insect from the correct drawing is on each numbered task card). Each task card contains three related math problems or critical thinking extension to the original math problem.
Set 1 – double digit addition up to 100 with two addends
Set 2 – double digit addition up to 100 with two or three addends
Set 3 – additional double digit addition up to 100 with two or three addends, some with unnecessary information
Task cards are included in both color, which prints well in greyscale, and an ink saver black-and-white version. 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:
