## Word Problems Year 4: Fun And Engaging Activities For Your Class

Share this post, table of contents, word problems year 4 - act them out.

Rather than simply working out the problem, get your students to act out the problem!

For example if your students are trying to work out this word problem: cinema tickets are £6 and 8 people are going.

How much did they pay altogether? You could print out 8 cinema tickets and have students work in a group to figure out the cost (8 students are going to the cinema and 1 person is the cashier).

This is a fun opportunity for your class to do some acting as well as learning how to work out year 4 word problems!

## Use Manipulatives

Using manipulatives is a really effective way of getting your students to visualise the word problem that they’re trying to solve.

Students can use anything from counters to pens!

Using manipulatives is always fun for students as they get to use fun tools like counters or building blocks – so the activity almost feels like play!

This gets students engaged in solving year 4 word problems!

## Creating Word Problems

Why not get your students to create their own year 4 word problems?

This activity allows your pupils to get creative and write their own problems! This way they can clearly see how word problems work and therefore will find it easier to solve them in the future.

The students can then swap word problems with their classmates and solve each other’s work. This could then involve some peer assessment where your students will mark the questions that they created!

## Make Some Silly Word Problems

Making up some silly word problems is a simple but fantastic way of engaging your students with this topic!

Whilst regular word problems may seem like a boring task for students, sillier problems may motivate them a little more to get learning!

Children love a chance to have some silly fun in the classroom, so this will help them to build a positive relationship with year 4 word problems.

Some Example Silly Word Problems – Year 4:

- The teacher ate 34 muffins for breakfast and 57 muffins for lunch. How many muffins did they eat before dinner?
- There were 38 dancing beans jumping around. 7 more jumping beans joined the dance party. How many dancing beans were there altogether?
- There were 280 flowers growing in a field. A group of girl scouts came and picked 3/4 of them. How many flowers were left? Some more silly word problems can be found here .

## Think - Pair - Share

Getting students to pair up and work together to solve year 4 word problems is a really effective learning technique for this topic.

Think – Pair – Share gives pupils the opportunity to work through problems at their own pace and explain what they think the answer is to another student.

Students will initially think about the problem independently, then pair up and share their ideas with their partner! Explaining the solving process is really important to understanding word problems.

## Student Becomes The Teacher

(I would recommend getting volunteers for this as not all students are comfortable at the front of the class!)

Why not get your students up to the front of the class to explain and work through some year 4 word problems?

As mentioned earlier, it is extremely beneficial for pupils to explain the process of solving the word problem as it can really increase their understanding.

Another great benefit of this is that it may help other students who are listening to their peers explain the problem solving process! Hearing explanations from a different perspective than the teacher can often be what makes the topic click!

## Using Pupils' Names

Incorporating students’ names into the word problems that they’re solving is a really fun method of engaging them in the content.

Children love when their name appears in a paper or even a book you may be reading, so this is guaranteed to be effective in your classroom!

A fun activity could be writing one word problem for each student which has their name in it. Each student would then solve their own personalised word problem!

This is an easy way of getting students engaging with year 4 word problems!

## Draw Pictures

Why not try to make year 4 word problems a little more creative?

Some students require visuals to really understand what they’re solving. So, get your students to draw out the problem that they’re working out!

For example, if your class is trying to work out how many books are on 3 shelves, they can draw out three shelves with the books on and count them! This shows they the problem and helps them to see what it is that they are solving.

## Daily Word Problem

Getting students used to year 4 word problems is really vital to their understanding! Having them consistently complete word problems is an effective way of ensuring that they won’t forget how to solve word problems. Why not introduce a daily word problem? Get their brains warmed up in the morning by giving them their daily word problem!

A great way to keep students familiar with this style of question is to incorporate word problems into different topics, such as fractions!

Emile is an excellent game-based online resource for primary schools!

Children will love playing on Emile and will be beyond excited to play the engaging and educational games!

With the assess, practise and achieve model, Emile is sure to allocate the right work for each individual!

## Reasoning/Problem Solving Maths Worksheets for Year 4 (age 8-9)

This category is all about children choosing the most appropriate method to achieve a quick and accurate answer and to be able to explain their methods and reasoning.

Problem solving: finding the missing digits in 4-digit numbers. Tricky!

Problem solving: finding the values of missing counters. Logical thinking and careful work needed here!

Reasoning about numbers on a number line and rounding numbers.

More reasoning about number and place value.

Not only do the questions have to be answered, but explanations given. These pages really show how well children understand what they are doing.

More written explanations on which operation to use and whether the question should be done mentally or on paper.

Lots of questions, most of which can be done mentally. The important thing is to explain how they were tackled.

Decide which operation is needed (add, subtract, multiply, divide) and whether a calculator, or pencil and paper are needed, or whether it can be done, 'in your head'.

## Solving problems

A selection of problem solving activities and word problems.

Here are some problems written in words. Fairly straightforward as they require just one mathematical step to work out the answer

Some word problems that need at least two steps to find the answer. This makes them much harder, so careful thinking is needed.

5 pages of word problems, all involving money. Some are suitable for calculator work as they are specially written to make the process the most important factor: it is no use having a calculator if you don't know what calculation to carry out!

A range of number and money problems, typical of those found in KS2 test papers.

More number and money problems, typical of those found in KS2 test papers.

Tricky word problems involving time and money.

More word problems; this time on measurement of length, mass and capacity. These really test children's understanding of when to use addition, subtraction, multiplication or division to solve a problem.

Time problems are especially tricky, especially when finding lengths of time that cross the hour boundary. A good knowledge of the number of days in each month is also needed.

Not many problems on a page, but there is an awful lot within each question. Each is a mini investigation, which can be explored in depth.

Number patterns, remainders, number machines and much more in this mixed selection of problems.

Working out the missing value.

More working out missing values.

Using the instructions on the packet what is the maximum number of bulbs that can be grown in the garden?

Using the instructions on the packet what is the maximum number of seeds that can be sown in the garden?

Using the instructions on the packet what is the maximum number of vegetables that can be grown in the garden?

An addition challenge suitable for year 4 on.

The fish are all called numbers. Can you work out their names by solving the clues?

## Investigations

More open ended activities where children choose the approach to the task.

Making rules for sequences is an early step towards understanding algebra, and an important part of Year 5 maths. More 'How would you...?' type questions as well.

How many different three course meals can Sam choose?

Investigate patterns made by placing consecutive numbers in a number square.

A great little investigation which has plenty of extension possibilities.

Fun addition investigation using the date: 22.02.2022.

Some thoughts on how important this area of maths is.

## 17 Fun Problem Solving Activities for Kids

There might be affiliate links on this page, which means we get a small commission of anything you buy. As an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases. Please do your own research before making any online purchase.

As a child, I would spend hours putting together puzzles… whether it was 3-D puzzles or figuring out a crossword. I also loved it when teachers would give the class an open-ended question and we had to work in groups to figure out the answer in our own way.

Even something as simple as playing checkers with my brothers gave me the chance to use strategy as a way to win the game. I honestly believe that it’s so important for kids to solve problems at a young age, as it helps them think critically and outside the box.

Table of Contents

## So, Why Is It Important To Teach Kids Problem Solving?

I think these kinds of activities are so important for kids to do because it helps them learn how to think analytically and solve problems on their own. It's a great way to get kids to use their imaginations and be creative.

Rote memorization simply does not have the same effect. This type of learning is great for learning facts like historical dates, but it’s not going to help kids figure out how events in history happened and the results.

We take these problem-solving skills into college, the workforce, and travel . My ability to problem solve since childhood has certainly got me through many sticky situations while in a new city or country.

Additionally, problem-solving helps children learn how to find creative solutions to challenges they may face both in and out of the classroom . These activities can also be fun and used in cohesion with school or playtime.

## 17 Fun Problem-Solving Activities for Kids

1. marble mazes.

This activity was selected because it requires them to think spatially. Spatial learning will benefit kids when they start driving, riding a bike, playing sports,etc.

To do this activity in its simplest form, you will need a piece of paper, a pencil, and some marbles. First, draw a maze on a piece of paper using a pencil.

Make sure to create a start and finish point. Then, place the marbles at the start of the maze. The goal is to get the marbles from the start to the finish by tilting the paper and using gravity to guide the marbles through the maze.

Another example of a marble maze can involve using toilet paper rolls taped together to create a three-dimensional maze. The larger the maze, the harder you can make it.

Check Price on Amazon!

If you are not into the DIY method, you can always buy a toy maze on Amazon. A good 48 piece puzzle is the Melissa & Doug Underwater Ocean Floor puzzle.

## 2. The Tower Challenge

Building a tower gives kids the chance to think about gravity, structure, and balance.

To do this activity, you will need some building materials like legos, blocks, or even toilet paper rolls. The challenge is to see how high they can stack the materials without the tower toppling over.

This can be done individually or in teams. An activity like this is good for younger kids and is the building block to learning about harder topics like engineering.

## 3. The Egg Drop Challenge

The egg drop challenge helps kids learn how to engineer a solution that prevents something from breaking. It requires them to think critically about which materials will best protect something fragile like an egg when dropped from a height.

To do this activity, you will need some eggs and various materials such as straws, cotton balls, bubble wrap, etc. The goal is to construct a device that will protect an egg from breaking upon impact.

This can be done individually or in teams . Teams can even have a competition for the best egg drop device.

As children begin handling, shopping for, and cooking their own food, activities like this will help them understand how to handle breakable items like bottles, eggs, delicate fruit,.etc. Ideally, this is best for age groups 8 and up.

## 4. The Penny Drop Challenge

This activity was selected because it requires kids to think about physics and how different materials affect sound.

To do this activity, you will need a penny ( or another coin), a cup, and various materials such as paper towels, cotton balls, etc.

The goal is to drop the penny into the cup without making any noise. Begin by placing different materials into the cup and then drop the penny into it. The children should also drop the penny from different heights into the same material to see if/how the impact from a higher drop affects sound.

Group kids into teams or let them try it on their own.

Kids should make note of what type of sounds are made when the penny hits different materials. This is a great activity for kids who are interested in science and physics.

## 5. The Balloon Race Challenge

This activity was selected because it helps kids learn about aerodynamics and Bernoulli’s principle . It also requires them to think creatively about how to design a balloon-powered vehicle.

To do this activity, you will need balloons, straws, masking tape, and markers. The goal is to design a balloon-powered vehicle that can travel a distance of at least 10 feet. Kids can begin this activity by sketching out their designs on paper.

After they have a basic design, they can begin building their vehicle from various materials. Then kids can explain why they think the balloon traveled or did not travel as far as it did.

## 6. The Marshmallow Challenge

Marshmallows are not only delicious, but they are also soft and malleable. So kids can have fun using it for some construction projects.

This activity was selected because it requires kids to think creatively about how to build a structure using limited materials. It also helps them learn about engineering and work as a team.

To do this activity, you will need marshmallows and spaghetti noodles. The goal is to build the tallest free-standing structure possible using only marshmallows and spaghetti noodles. If you don't have spaghetti noodles, use something similar like pretzel sticks.

You may even want to establish certain rules like each team can only use a certain number of marshmallows or noodles. A time limit can also make it more fun and challenging.

For more fun activities, check out our post on problem solving exercises for team building .

## 7. The Balloon Pop Challenge

If you remember your childhood, you probably remember popping balloons for fun at times. But this activity is different because it requires kids to use strategy and critical thinking.

This activity was selected because it helps kids learn about patterns and problem-solving. It is also a lot of fun for kids who like popping balloons. The goal is to create a device that will allow them to pop a balloon without using their hands.

To do this activity, you will need balloons and various materials such as straws, string, paper clips, etc.

## 8. Picture Pieces Puzzle Game

As mentioned earlier, puzzles are a great pastime – especially in childhood. Kids must think critically about how to put the pieces together to create a certain picture. It also helps them learn about shapes, colors, and other concepts.

You can take a medium to large picture and cut it into pieces. If you have younger kids, you may want to make the pieces larger. However, if you have kids closer to the 8-11 age range, you should be able to provide a challenge and make the pieces smaller.

## 9. Copy the Block Model

For this challenge, you can build a model out of blocks for the kids to copy. Put kids into groups and make sure each group has the same number of blocks you used for your model.

Make your model block as simple or complex as needed for your child's age group.

Set a time limit and make sure each group starts at the same time.

## 10. Team Scavenger Hunt

A scavenger hunt is great for kids because they have to search for items and use investigative skills. It is also a lot of fun and can be done both indoors and outdoors .

To do this activity, you will need to create a list of items for the kids to find. The items can be anything from common household items to things you would find outside.

These types of activities can also revolve around a theme like a holiday, movie, or book. For example, if the kids are fans of “Harry Potter” you can make a list of items to find that are related to the movie.

## 11. Obstacle Course

This activity requires kids to think creatively about how to get from one point to another while maneuvering around obstacles. If you have outdoor space, this can be done with common objects such as hula hoops, cones, etc.

If you don't have access to an outdoor space, you can use common household items to create an indoor obstacle course. For example, you can use chairs, blankets, pillows, etc.

Begin by setting up the course and then timing each child as they complete it. You can also have them race against each other to make it more fun.

Obstacle courses are also great because kids get to be physically active while they are thinking critically.

## 12. Reading Storybooks

There are many great benefits for kids that read storybooks. One of the excellent benefits is the ability to problem-solve. When they read the stories in the books, they see scenarios that cause them to be attached to the various characters they read about.

So, when they encounter a real-life problem, it is often productive to ask a child how their favorite character would solve that problem. Your kids can also be encouraged to come up with various options and possible outcomes for some of the situations they may encounter.

This not only helps kids solve various problems but become more independent as well.

## 13. Ask Them Open-Ended Questions

A good way to improve a child's ability to think critically and creatively and improve their ability to solve problems is by asking open-ended questions. It also helps them to develop healthy personalities .

There are no right or wrong answers to these questions. In addition, the solution requires more than a simple “yes” or “no” answer. Furthermore, it allows kids to put some extra thought into their responses.

Here are some examples of open-ended questions you may want to ask.

- What did this experience teach you?
- Was this easy? What was easy about it?
- What this difficult? What is complicated about it?
- What may happen next in this situation?
- How did you come to this solution?
- What, if anything, would you do differently next time?
- What can we do to make things more fun next time?

## 14. Build Various Structures with Toys

Whether wooden blocks, LEGO blocks, or engineering blocks… giving your kid blocks to build whatever their minds can dream up is fun. In addition, it requires them to think about how they will make a structure, put the pieces together, and creatively ensure the building's function and design.

You may also want to challenge them to build something more complicated and watch them use their brain power to make it happen.

## 15. Acting Out Skits

Impromptu activities like acting out skits help kids identify problems, develop solutions, and execute them. This process works with multiple kids being divided into teams.

First, you will want to write down different situations, such as resolving a disagreement between siblings or dealing with bullying on the playground on a piece of paper. Second, you will fold the paper and place it in a hat or bowl.

Third, each team will pick a scenario out of the hat. Finally, you can give the kids a few minutes to discuss their solution and act out.

## 16. Solving Moral Dilemmas

In this simple game, you will help your kids solve simple dilemmas they may find themselves in. You could write down a situation your child may find themselves in and help them learn the moral way to solve the problem.

For instance, “The cashier gave them an additional $5 change back on my purchase. What should they do?” Another scenario could be, “I saw my friend cheating on a test. Should I tell on them or let it go?” A third one could be, “I caught my friends stealing some gum from the store. What should I do?”

After writing down the dilemmas and placing them in a bowl, get each child to select one and read it aloud. Finally, you will help them devise morally correct solutions to the moral dilemma.

## 17. Animal Pairing Game

This is a fun and creative game to help your kids with focus, critical thinking, and team building skills . In addition, this activity requires an even number of players to participate (4, 6, 8, etc.)

Before starting the game, you will want to write the names of different animals twice, each on a separate slip of paper. Then pass out the slips of paper to each individual or team member, instructing them not to share with anyone the name of the animal they received.

Then the children will perform activities the animals might do without talking or making sounds. Some of these activities might include:

- The way the animal cleans or grooms itself
- The way the animal sleeps
- The way the animal fights
- The way the animal eats or drinks
- The way the animal walks or runs

The goal is for each child to successfully pair up with the other child who has selected the same animal.

## How Problem Solving in Childhood Helps in Adulthood

Children are not born with problem-solving skills. It is something that needs to be learned and developed over time .

From babies who learn how to communicate their needs to toddlers who figure out how to get what they want, to children who are starting to understand the consequences of their actions – problem-solving is a process that begins in childhood and continues into adulthood.

Some of the benefits of teaching problem-solving skills to children include:

- Improved critical thinking skills
- Better decision-making skills
- Enhanced creativity
- Improved communication and collaboration skills
- Increased confidence

There are many ways to teach problem-solving skills to children. The activities mentioned above are just a few examples. It is important to find activities that are appropriate for the age and abilities of the child.

With practice, children will develop these skills and be better prepared to face challenges in both childhood and adulthood.

## Final Thoughts About Fun Problem Solving Activities For Kids
