FREE MATH LESSON – “Digital Decoding Activity: Addition and Subtraction”

by Anderson’s Academic Shop
3rd – 5th Grade

Welcome to my store! I wanted to share a free resource that I created as a digital activity for my students.

A robot has infiltrated their assignment and students need to solve addition and subtraction problems to solve the sequencer that will shut it down! This activity also reviews place value in order to solve the sequence.

The great thing about this activity is that it auto-grades. If the cells where they input their answers turn green, then they got it correct! If they type in the correct sequence of digits, then the “false” message will be replaced by something else!

It can be attached to Google Classroom or Schoology as a Google Sheets assignment.
