This activity is designed to provide students with practice with fractions while at the same time they can have some fun. Students will have to act like detectives while solving clues to figure out the mystery puzzles.
There are 16 word puzzles for students to solve and the puzzles have QR codes for self-checking. There is also an answer key provided. There is a blank template included to allow for students to make more mystery word fractions for their friends. Just copy and laminate and it is ready to go.
This activity is great for a math center or math workshop. The cards could also be placed around the classroom to get students up and moving as they go from puzzle to puzzle. Provide your students with small magnifying glasses to use as they solve each puzzle which will add to the fun.
