Do a little science and math with this digital Google Sheets product that helps students practice solving 1 and 2 step story problems with addition, subtraction, basic multiplication, and basic division. (Great for 3rd or 4th graders!) It includes 12 different word problems that students answer based on the recipe for baggie ice cream. If they answer correctly, parts of a pixel picture magically appear. Students will know they’re finished once the entire picture has been created.
This activity is great for math, but it can be used to actually make Baggie Ice Cream as well! It includes a projectable set of instructions, a printable booklet that students can take home when they’re done at school, and the printed version of the questions from the Google Sheets activity. Make the recipe and then complete the digital word problem activity, or use the recipe as a station for students once they’ve completed their math. Either way, it will be a lesson not quickly forgotten!
This product is easy to assign through Google Classroom. It’s great for partner work, math station activities, or just extra practice.
