Do your students need some extra practice with fraction addition and subtraction? Crypto-Dino puzzles are here for you!
This set contains 10 puzzles, five for each operation. The first 2 addition puzzles and the first 2 subtraction puzzles focus on fractions with like denominators. The last 3 of each have a mix of like and unlike denominator practice.
To solve these puzzles, students will first practice their fraction prowess with 16 addition or subtraction problems. They will find a letter next to each solution which they will use to fill in blanks at the bottom of the page. When the blanks are all filled in correctly, five clues will be revealed! Students must then use their dino powers to figure out which prehistoric creature is being referred to.
If your students are not dino crazy, that’s ok! There are also hints to the solution. The puzzles have been designed so that the mystery dino can be revealed when students go back and reduce all reducible fractions.
