Crypto-Animals were designed to help students practice multi-digit operations while having fun! First, they plug through the math problems. Then they use their answers to finish a set of clues at the bottom of the page. Last, they use their animal knowledge to deduce the mystery animals based on the completed clues.
This pack provides a sample of one addition, one subtraction, one multiplication, and one division puzzle. You can try these samples with your students and if they love them, you can find more at the following links:
