Solve It Strips are a FUN, hands-on, NO PREP, math extension activity that keeps students engaged! These can be used as a math center, an early-finisher activity, with a parent-led math group, or as a mini-assessment. Solve It Strips also make fun practice at home, too!
Students are challenged to use their mental math skills in solving the problems on each strip. Students begin with the “Start” strip and solve the problem on that strip. That will lead them to the second strip, and so forth, until students end up with the solution for the “FINISH” strip. After students glue strips down, they color in each solution box for self-checking. In each set (not in this sample) two cover options are included, along with easy directions for storage of Solve It Strips.
SEE THE VIDEO PREVIEW FILE for an example in action! This is a such a FUN and EASY math center to keep going ALL YEAR LONG!
