Someone stole your cupcake from the teacher workroom and you need your students to help you find out who stole it, when, and why!
This is my favorite activity!
The activity is a really fun, quirky way to have students practice solving one-step equations. There are 12 one-step equations to solve using basic operations (multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction.) Students will then use their answers to compare to a key and solve the puzzle. You can either use the one I created or use the editable key to personalize the activity for your classroom.
