These puzzles were made with 3rd-5th graders in mind, however they may also be appropriate for other grade levels as well! These are meant to be challenging and promote healthy and productive struggling as students grapple with the numbers - but I've found my kiddos really love these puzzles and feel such a sense of accomplishment when they solve them!
