This math mystery is a fun way for 2nd graders to solve word problems in a unique way. Kids start reading at the beginning of the book, solve the problems, and go where the book tells them to go! A wrong answer will send them to a 'stopper' that will tell them to go back to where they were working, and TRY AGAIN!
It's time for March Madness and St. Patrick's Day, so I made this mystery a moosh of both...but it is a basic mystery that can be read at any time!
This mystery includes these skills:
*subtraction with basic regrouping
*Time to the nearest 5 minutes
*finding area with squares
*Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes do not have to have the
*graphing and comparing data
*estimating as to whether you have enough money
There are a total of 10 word problems included in this story. Some of them are multi-step problems as well.
I use these mysteries at my math stations during guided math. I am sure your kids will love this March Madness themed math mystery book as much as mine do! What the next mystery will bring?
