Do we have to complete ALL of the challenges? No, you can mix- and-match the challenges, as each puzzle is independent of the other.

Several detailed and thorough teacher instruction pages have been included, which provide differentiated instructions and suggestions for the various challenges. Answer keys have also been provided for ALL of the challenges!
