The no prep puzzles
are a great option if you want students to get some fine motor cutting practice and NOT know the final shape. These “cut out” sheets are meant to be given directly to the students to cut out and put together so they don't know the shape. These will be more challenging. But they are no prep – just print and go
An editable PowerPoint file has been included as a center rubric.
A full page option and half page option are both included. Print these out for immediate use, or change the wording and format to fit the needs of YOUR students.
Use these puzzles anytime you need a fun math activity - particularly for baseball season, Father's Day,
or a sports theme classroom.
Students with special needs also do well with these once they understand the concept. With this fun game format your students will stay engaged while practicing necessary division skills!
These puzzles are meant to be somewhat of a challenge - which is perfect to promote a growth mindset
. Students will have to keep in mind the shape of the baseball mitt and persevere if the task seems challenging. Tell students to rotate the pieces around and analyze what they can do differently until they fit. This is where their critical thinking
and 21st Century skills
will come into play!
Just print and quickly cut on the lines (or simply print the NO PREP option) and you have instant baseball math centers
that make skill practice fun and engaging. If you have some extra time, let your third, fourth, and fifth graders decorate the finished division baseball mitt. These colored masterpieces can then be used as artwork
for the classroom, to help decorate a bulletin board
, or be hung in the hallway to add some festive art flair. (And no administrator complaints since it's an academic activity!)
You're going to love these puzzles as a last minute, print and go resource! The next time you have a crazy hectic home school day - grab, download, and go! You'll instantly get your sanity back, fit in some academic work, AND have fun at the same time.
Answer key included! Correcting is easy when you use the original fully formed baseball mitt to ensure all the numbers are in the correct order and the shape is fully created.
