Turn Your Students Into Junior Detectives!
Mystery Missing Signs turns your students into junior detectives in search of missing addition and subtraction signs to complete equations. Putting their critical thinking skills to the test, they decide if plus or minus signs are needed in the equations and write their answers on the their Student Record Sheets. (Be sure to remind them to write the signs in order to be counted correct.)
In addition to the 28 Task Cards, this set also includes:
• blank templates to add your own mystery missing signs
• a Student Record Sheet
• an Answer Key
• directions for playing a game of Scoot
• an Award Certificate
These Task Cards are a great way for reviewing and reinforcing addition and subtraction as well as putting critical thinking skills to work.
Mystery Missing Signs is ideal for:
• morning warm-up activities
• learning center activities
• extra credit
• homework assignments
• activities for “early finishers”
• instant activities for substitutes
