Our Additional Strategies for +/- lesson plan provides additional strategies for addition and subtraction. The lesson breaks down both operations using place value. Students are asked to use their creativity and work collaboratively to create a story problem with specific criteria and create a poster displaying the problem, which the class will then solve as a group. Students are also asked to demonstrate their understanding by solving practice problems on their own.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to add and subtract within 1,000.
