©**Unlock the Fact Math Puzzles **are an original idea by The Teacher Wears Prada...in a NUTSHELL...students **answer **the problems, put the **puzzle together, **which then **reveals an INTERESTING FACT**! SAY IT WITH ME...**CONTENT INTEGRATION**!! :)

DOWNLOAD the PREVIEW to see a few examples.

::Here are **48 MULTIPLICATION Math Puzzles** that reveal interesting and **fun** facts about various animals, the human body, planets/solar system, etc.

These cross-curricular math puzzles are super **LOW PREP **which I LOVE and NEED. I simply print these out on colored paper, laminate, THEN cut along the lines into strips. It’s so much easier to laminate them first, and cut them out second. Next, I rubber band or bind each set together using a mini binder clip. Once I’m ready to place these out for the students to use during math rotations, I’ll just place them in a small basket.

This resource includes 40** different puzzles PLUS 8 BONUS PUZZLES **that cover the following 3rd Grade Multiplication Skills {Common Core}:

**::HOW TO USE THIS RESOURCE:: **

First, the students answer all 9 questions. Using a thin dry erase marker, students will write the answer in the rectangular box. Once they’ve answered all 9 questions, they will put the puzzle strips in order from LEAST to GREATEST. {See example in the PREVIEW} If they have answered the problems correctly and have placed the numbers in order correctly, a FUN FACT will be revealed.

{LOVE being able to tie in so many skills at once!} I hold my students ACCOUNTABLE for everything so I have them record their answers on the recording sheet. Once they’ve checked their answers with the answer key (provided in the file). {I laminate all the answer keys and place them on a ring for students to access easily} I have my students glue their recording sheet in the “Centers” section of their math journal.

You could also just send it home once it’s been checked/graded. I also have my students keep track of the facts they reveal {sneaking in a little writing!}

You can either have them write their facts in their math journal/writing journal/any journal of your choice or use the booklet I’ve provide in this file. I love using the booklet.

OR you don’t need to have your students write their fact at all—it’s totally up to you. I hope you like this resource! I will be making an Unlock the Fact Math Puzzle set for each month and 3rd grade standard.
