This math mystery is a fun way for 3rd graders to practice doing a variety of word problems in a unique way.
Kids just start reading at the beginning of the book, solve the problems, and go where the book tells them to go! If they get the wrong answer, they will have a 'stopper' that will tell them to go back to where they were working, and TRY AGAIN!
This mystery includes these skills:
*elapsed time to the 5 minutes
*reading a bar graph and figuring information from it
*add 3 2-digit numbers
*Counting and adding money
*simple fraction addition
*converting measures (feet to yards and seconds to minutes)
*measurement to 1/2 inch
There are a total of 10 word problems included in this story. Some of them are multi-step problems as well.
I use these mysteries at my math stations during guided math. I am sure your kids will love this Halloween themed math mystery book as much as mine do! What the next mystery will bring?
