Learning Style Addressed: Visual

Multiple Intelligence: Visual/Spatial, Logical/Mathematical, Verbal/Linguistic

Standards: 1.OA.2, 2.OA.1, 3.OA.8, 4.OA.2, 4.OA.3, 5.NF.2, 6.NS.1

Overview:  Students create a math problem picture story where they substitute words in the problem with pictures.

Objective: Students understand mathematical terminology in story problems.

Example: Jill is going to earn some spending during harvest time by helping pick for her neighbors.  She plans to charge $4.00  per .  Mr. Brown has 18 in his orchard and Mrs. Green has 15 in her orchard.  At the end of the first day the sum  of money earned is $8.00.  At the end of the second day the sum  of money earned is $16.00.

Digital option: Students can use a word processing program and clip art to create their math problem picture story.

Tech-free option: Students can use stickers, drawings, stamps, or pictures cut out of a magazine to create their math problem picture story.
