Literature/Math Crossover Lesson Plan – Word Problems

This story involves subtraction. The main character reduces the number of opponents through various excuses. The number goes from 30 to 29 to 22, etc. It can be seen as a giant word problem. It is important for students to build up operational skills like subtraction. This story is also an interesting example of a word problem — if the cat (the main character) started with 30 tigers and ended with 1, how many tigers were sent away?
