Looking for fractions, decimals, or volume math fun? What is the #1 math activity according to my students? Box of Mystery! They love to solve the math on the puzzle pieces and move around the school to locate more puzzle pieces! (I included versions of each activity that does NOT require leaving the classroom if that isn't feasible for you.) Students get to be detectives while showcasing their math skills! The puzzle pieces end up giving them the code to unlock the "Box of Mystery!"
