Drill without the kill.
This is a riddle worksheet
in which students use an answer bank to solve a (slightly cheesy) joke. They like this activity because it makes the math meaningful and FUN. Teachers like it because the answer bank gives students a tool to self-assess
Tell your students the joke is really funny, if they are underwhelmed tell them it requires a verrrrry
sophisticated sense of humor. This becomes an ongoing joke. Well, at least in my classroom it does.
Because of the answer bank for students and answer sheet for teachers, this activity is great for homeschool and students with special needs. Great for warmups, great for use with a substitute.
