Looking for something quick, easy & fun
that your kiddos can do on Martin Luther King Day
and still practice standards
How ‘bout an MLK number puzzle
I’ve included a variety
of puzzles that count by 1s to 10, count backwards
from 10 to 1, as well as skip count by 2s, 5s & 10s
Print, laminate & trim the full color
ones and use as an independent math center
Use the black & white
options, so that students can color and cut
up their own puzzle.
Be sure and give them some background facts about MLK’s life, to go with the various puzzles, so that they can share this information when they get home.
For an interesting “craftivity”
have students glue their puzzle to a sheet of construction paper.
Remind them to leave a little bit of a gap between each numbered strip to create an especially cool mosaic
Completed projects make a cute bulletin board
or have older students complete a writing prompt
on the back of their puzzle, then suspend from the ceiling.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy learning about Martin Luther King, while practicing numbers and skip counting with a number puzzle.
