If you're looking for a different and fun way for your third grade students to practice adding three two-digit numbers with sums within 100, you'll love this set of 24 riddle task cards! These task cards will get your students THINKING and keep them engaged far beyond what worksheets can do!
Choosing from four numbers on each card, your students will solve addition equations to determine the elf's secret sum, eliminating three of the options. They'll have a great time and won’t even realize that they’ve completed 72 problems when all of the cards are done!
A student recording page, answer key, and board game are also included.
Here are some ways that you might use math riddle task cards in your classroom:
* Use in a math center for individual work
* Use for partner work, and you'll hear lots of great math talk!
* Use with your document camera for whole class review or to focus attention at the
beginning of a math lesson
* Use as morning “bell ringers”
* Use as challenge work or for early finishers
* Use as an activity with classroom volunteers – they can complete as few or as
many as time allows!
* Use as a skills review rotation (aka "Scoot"), individually or with partners, with
students moving to stations around the classroom to solve the clues
* Print in black and white to use in interactive notebooks. Give one puzzle to each
student and have them write about their thinking as they solve the riddle.
