This common core math packet has students practicing their facts in a fun way! Each student will have a "Top Secret" or "Confidential" file (math fact sheet copied on the back). They will use a magnifying glass to solve the case of the missing fact or sum and write it in the magnifying glass beneath the file folder.
To do this activity whole class, you will need a class set of magnifying glasses. Otherwise, it also makes a great center activity and is differentiated!
Play the Pink Panther theme song (link included) as you pass out the "files". If you have a briefcase, have the "files" and magnifying glasses in it and pass out from that! If you have a detective hat and spy sunglasses, add those for extra fun! If you are using as a center, store the materials in a briefcase.
