This riddle activity is a great way for students to practice a skill and for you to quickly assess which students have grasped the concept and which need more practice.
This set provides 8 - 2 digit addition with regrouping problems (4 are story problems). Each time a student completes a question correctly they receive a letter to help answer a riddle. When they complete the last question they receive the final letter and the riddle.
My students LOVED this activity. They cheered each time I told them they had a riddle to solve. Even my students who struggled with math were motivated by this activity.
I loved the activity because my students were all engaged. I used it as an end of unit assessment as well as during a unit to check for understanding. It was a great way to prep for a test. It provided me with a quick way to see who needed some additional help and allowed me to provide it on the spot!
I have provided some tips on how to set it up in the classroom, as well as a couple of options for copying the riddles and letters. An answer sheet is included.
