This lesson, from ReadWriteThink, focuses on reading comprehension skills as they apply to mathematics story problems, as well as on written and verbal mathematics communication skills. Students use drawings, equations, and written responses to solve single story problems with enlarged print. The end product of this activity is a series of poster-size story problems that can serve as models for later problem-solving work.
