Winter Math Centers just got a lot more engaging! These fun logic problem puzzles will challenge your students and get them thinking about addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division in a whole new way. These are ideal as early finisher tasks, morning tubs, partner math centers, or a fun problem-solving and critical thinking routine. The algebraic thinking that is involved in these puzzles will keep students engaged and challenged.
For each of the 160 logic puzzles in this bundle, your students will find the value for each symbol and record it on the accompanying recording sheet.
Don't be fooled! If your students are not used to working with numbers in this way, these will be surprisingly challenging!
If you are like most teachers and teach a class with various ability levels, this multi-grade bundle is the perfect way to provide differentiation and ensure that each student works to their full potential. You want to provide just enough challenge for each student but not SO MUCH challenge that this activity becomes frustrating.
Either assign specific logic puzzles to students or lay out the various sets and have students choose the one that provides the perfect challenge for their brain! (This can be a great way to empower your students and teach responsibility for their own learning.)
