Description

Engage students and build number sense and problem solving skills at the same time! This Out of This World Brain Busters packet is a set of 10 challenging math picture problems that will require students to think flexibly about numbers and their relationships.

Each page has a 4x4 shape puzzle with outer space symbols representing number values. Students need to analyze the puzzle to solve for each symbol.

INCLUDED IN THIS PACKET:
-Black and White Student Cover Page to Color
-10 Outer Space Picture Puzzle Pages
-Answer Keys for All Pages

The computational skills required to solve the puzzles are 2nd grade level. Students can use addition and subtraction, without relying on knowledge of multiplication or division, in order to solve. However, the problem solving skills required and reinforced by these puzzles are appropriate for students well past 2nd grade. I've used these with great success with math groups in grades 2-4.
