Product Description
These Magic Square and Magic Triangle task cards will have your students doing some
serious math, while having fun with the puzzles at the same time. Win-win!

These are challenging and provide for lots of logical thinking. I've used these cards with
students in Grades 1 - 5, and they're always fun. For younger students, put these cards
inside a plastic sleeve (or allow them to write on a laminated card) so they can erase often
and try again! I sometimes give students 1-inch numbers (either as tiles or just paper) so kids
can arrange and rearrange! Also, some of the puzzles are more challenging than others.

For the Magic Square puzzles, students fill in the addends so that every row, column, and
diagonal equals the Magic Sum. However, students must think critically as each number
can only be used one time.

For the Magic Triangle puzzles, they fill in the addends so that each side of the triangle
equals the Magic Sum. Same rules - use each number one time only.

Very engaging. Great for math centers or as an early-finisher or sub activity.
