Number puzzles are a quick, easy and fun way for students to practice sequencing numbers from 1 to 10, counting backwards from 10 to 1, as well as skip counting by 2s, 3s, 5s & 10s. (I use the skip counting by 10s puzzles for one of our 100 Day centers.)
By featuring a penny, nickle, dime, quarter, half dollar and dollar coin on the puzzles, they are also a way to reinforce differences, to help students identify and remember the various coins.
Print, laminate & trim and use as an independent math center.
I've also included trace & write ones as well, so that students can color & cut up their own puzzle.
This is a fun activity anytime, but also fits in well with Presidents' Day too.
For an interesting “craftivity” have students glue their puzzle to a sheet of construction paper.
Remind them to leave a little bit of a gap between each numbered strip, to create an especially cool mosaic effect.
Completed projects make a cute bulletin board.
