Find a picture in a newspaper/magazine and write a setting description/story that matches it.

Roll a dice (or create some digit cards) a number of times to create 2 different numbers. Then use these numbers within a formal written method.
Addition = 4-digit numbers
Subtraction = 4-digit numbers
Multiplication = 3-digit by a 1-digit
Division = 3-digit by a 1-digit
CHALLENGE = Think of a target answer. How close can you get? What if you change the place value column of the digits?
