Word Problems and Drawings


In our Word Problems and Drawings lesson plan, students learn how to use visual aids, such as drawings, to help them solve word problems. They will practice using drawings to solve problems and will create their own word problems.


Our Word Problems and Drawings lesson plan guides students through the strategy of using pictures to understand and solve word problems. Students are asked to complete an interactive activity that encourages them to physically act out word problems, enabling them to connect language to movement and pictures as a bridge to identifying and solving the underlying math problem. Students are also asked to engage in peer learning as they create word problems for the class to solve.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to solve word problems using drawings.
