    Hello!

    I used to team teach and a good lesson for that coulod be problem solving. Develop 5 problem solving questions that could be solved multiple using multiple methods. Write one of the problems on the board or chart paper for the kids to see. Have one teacher read the question outloud and model her thinking process for how she would solve the problem. Then have the other teacher say, "great idea. I thought about solving it this way." Then have her model another way to solve the problem. DO this for at least 3 problems while the class watches on. Then hand out 2 word problems for students to solve. Have them pair/share with a partner how they solved the probelm. Then bring the whole group together to share problem solving strategies.

    I hope this helps!
