This is a set of math puzzle activities in which students will help to solve the mystery of Pete's Pet. Students will collect clues by completing various puzzles using their skills in adding and subtracting integers. 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 Pete’s missing pet. Puzzles include a math maze, a coded message, a spiral maze, a hidden message and a scavenger hunt, all solved by adding and subtracting integers.

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

For a similar puzzle set which uses adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing integers, please consider The Case of Dan's Delivery.
