Kindness Through Math Story Problems
- Small cubes or counters to work out the story problem
- Kindness story problems (See story problems below.)
Focusing on acts of kindness for people, animals, and the environment through math word problems, help people recognize and perform real acts of kindness.
The learners will solve a variety of math story problems, explain how they solved them, and determine what act of kindness occurred in the story problem.
The teacher will read off one story problem at a time. Students use cubes to show the problem. Ask individual students to give their answer to the problem, explain how they figured out the answer, and describe what act of kindness occurred in the story problem.
Conclude the lesson by comparing the acts of kindness in the word problems to REAL kind acts they do for people, animals, and the environment.
