Solving Word Problems with Fish

Send your class fishing...for the right answers! Small groups collaborate to create math word problems based on the fish in their classroom aquarium or on the aquarium itself. After all groups determine the answer for their ownproblem, they pass it to a different group to solve. A sample word problem is worked through by the teacher before the groups begin their work. Zero in on specific skills by assigning what types of operations and/or measurements must be included in the problems .
