These 3-Digit addition and subtraction with Regrouping worksheets provides an opportunity to practice mathematical skills as well as problem solving skills in a more practical context. The high interest topics in these mysteries are also highly motivating for this age group and will capture their imagination.
These 3-Digit math mysteries are designed for second, third and fourth grade students. Could also be used with struggling fifth grade students that need a little extra work and reinforcement in take aways (or advanced, gifted and talented second grade). I also leave some of the mysteries for my sub teacher and rainy days.
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 for all year round (January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December) and every season (Winter snow days, Spring, Autumn, Fall, Summer) They help with setting up a class as start of year activities and keep the students engaged as end of year activities.
