Challenge your students to sharpen their math skills with these 10 fun and engaging color-by-code puzzles for upper elementary students. These puzzles are truly no-prep! Just print and go!
You get these 10 puzzles:
-Primes and Composites
-Rounding to Tens
-Rounding to Hundreds
-Rounding Decimals to Tenths
I’ve included a color answer key for fast visual checking. Students can even check their own work!
Use the coloring tool of your choice. I recommend that students use crayons or coloring pencils. Students will only need a basic set of 12.
NOTE ON TIME; Some of the puzzles can take a good amount of time, especially if students are practicing the skill with pencil/paper. Give your kids plenty of time to complete them. You might use some of the puzzles as a project of the week, homework, or even a collaborative activity with a partner. You also might assign just a few of the problems as Morning Work each day for a week.
These make a great display and are a good piece to include in a math portfolio. I've included suggestions for extensions and content notes.
