Free Winter Problem Solving Task Cards

Three multi-step problem solving task cards for the 5th grade skill TEKS 5.4B

Teaching problem solving skills to students can be one of the most difficult things for a 5th grade teacher to accomplish!

This set of 12 multi-step multi-operation winter word problems will give your students great practice on this difficult skill.

Each word problem is paired with a strip diagram to scaffold your students’ problem solving.

This free math resource is aligned to the Texas TEKS 5.4B which requires students to both solve and represent multi-step problems using whole numbers and a variable.  Students can match the word problem to a representation created with a strip diagram.  They are also encouraged to write an equation that represents the problem and solve it.

The task cards have playful winter scenarios like snowball fights, hot cocoa, and skiing!
