Here's a math activity that your students will beg for more of... and you'll enjoy it, too!
Build math skills, vocabulary, inference
, and the ability to distinguish and use key details
with this bundle of 240 math riddle cards for grades one and two.
These sets are great for spiraled review
all year when you use a card or two every day! Each of the cards has a three-clue riddle whose answer is a number from one to 120.
Here's a sample of one of the riddles:
I am an odd number.
I have 8 tens.
My ones digit is two less than my tens digit.
What am I?
The cards can be used in so many ways:
* Solve a riddle a day together for spiraled math review.
* Use a riddle as a warm-up before your math lesson.
* Expand your calendar activities
by solving one or more riddles
each day and using the cards to build a hundred chart.
* In a small group or with partners, they can be used with two 100 number
games. Task cards/directions cards are included.
* Use the riddle cards as task cards
. Students can check their own
solutions on the answer key
* For independent work, the cards can be used with the included solve-and-color
* Use them for a Read the Room activity
- keep your little
mathematicians moving for better learning!
* For ongoing whole class review, distribute a card to each child, give a few
moments to solve, and have the children line themselves up to leave the classroom
by putting themselves in numerical order.
* Solving riddles is a great way to model and practice identifying key details, making
inferences, and drawing conclusions.
In order to be successful with these riddle cards, your students should be familiar with odd/even, tens and ones, adding and subtracting tens, US coins (pennies, nickels, dimes), and comparison signs for equalities and inequalities.
Please note, this set uses only US coins.
To allow independent use in math centers, this resource also includes an answer key.
