Something's fishy in this addition word problem challenge! Scholars examine an interesting scenario (included with an image for projection): Kim's fish tank can hold 10 fish. She wants 10 clownfish, but needs to figure out what combination of two types to purchase. Learners consider this dilemma and come up with various numbers with 10 as the sum. Use snap cubes or other manipulatives to show them how this looks visually. Extension activities are also included. Adjust the wording in the last sentence of the word problem.
