These challenging summer problem solving task cards are geared towards intermediate classrooms FREE from The Curriculum Corner.

This set of summer problem solving cards are designed to be used as center work or as a SCOOT game in your classroom.

Use this free task card set as a new free classroom resource for your classroom.

This collection contains 24 different word problems with a summer theme for summer problem solving.

Many of the problems require multiple steps and are designed to be a challenge for students. You might find that some of the problems are good for group problem solving tasks.

You can download this set of 24 problems, recording pages and answer key by clicking on the bold link at the bottom of this post.

We suggest printing on card stock and laminating this set for durability. After laminating, cut apart the word problem cards.

You can choose to have students complete as a center task by placing the cards in a basket and providing students with a recording page.

If you choose to play as a Scoot game, there are also recording forms for this, numbered 1 – 24.   Scoot activities are an easy way to incorporate movement, yet still provide practice and engagement for students.

All you need to do for this activity is to print and laminate the cards and copy a recording page for each student.

To play Scoot, place one card at each student’s seat.  They will begin writing on their recording page at the number of the card at their seat.

After giving students a few minutes to solve the problem, the teacher yells “Scoot” to signal students to rotate to a new seat.  (You will need to plan out the direction and path of the rotation before beginning.)  The activity continues until students have traveled to each spot.
