Product Description
This is a set of math puzzle activities in which students will help to solve the mystery of The Forgetful Farmhand. Students will collect clues by completing various puzzles using their skills in adding and subtracting fractions. Like the classic board game CLUE, they will then use the process of elimination to solve the mystery.

This set of five puzzles is designed to be used over a five-day time period. By completing the puzzles, students will find clues which will lead them to discover everything they need to know about what the Farmhand is supposed to be doing. Puzzles include a math maze, a coded message, a spiral maze, a hidden message and a scavenger hunt, all solved by working with fractions.

Skills include: writing equivalent fractions, simplifying fractions, adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators, finding the LCM and adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators.

This 19-page download includes student worksheets, teacher instructions, answer keys and colorful scavenger hunt cards.
