These math mysteries are designed for third, fourth and fifth grade students. Could also be used with struggling sixth grade students that need a little extra work and reinforcement in multiplying by algorithms (Or advanced second grade). I also leave some of the mysteries for my sub teacher.

Math Mysteries are an independent escape room (or crack the code) type of activity where instead of using locks, students identify suspects with puzzles and word problems . This mystery is perfect all year round, Halloween, Easter, Christmas, start of school, end of year and any season. (fall, spring, summer and winter), Thanksgiving, or veterans day.
