There is no model for this lesson. The essential question for this lesson is: "How can drawing a diagram help when solving subtraction problems?" The goal is for students to read a word problem, and take it step by step. They are to think about what the question asks for and the information they need to use. By thinking through a problem and drawing a bar model, the students will be able to determine if they've arrived at a reasonable answer - one of the Standards for Mathematical Practices.
