Provided in this set is 12 Cinco de Mayo Themed task cards that deal with subtraction. Each math story problem is different allowing the students to solve simple subtraction word problems. It is a fun and engaging way to have students solve these problems. None of these problems involve money.
Use these 12 response cards to help your students with word problem scenarios to analyze the situation and write equations that represent that situation (CCSS 1.OA.A.1). Depending on your learners, these task cards can be used for many areas of teaching and work well during whole group instruction, math centers, stations, or for partner work. I personally love using this with my whole class as a SCOOT type activity.
All 12 response cards are based around the holiday of: Cinco de Mayo
A student answer sheet is included along with an answer key for self-checking or teacher use.
