For each 5-digit mystery number activity, your students will work step-by-step, using the clues to eliminate numbers and figure out which one is the mystery number. They will work with math vocabulary such as odd, even, greater than, less than, sum, difference, and much more. A fun, engaging way to build problem-solving skills too!
