Here is how to play Riddle the Room:
Students read the riddle on the answer document and then move around solving questions on the 14 task cards posted around the room. As students solve each question, they write the letter of the answer on their answer document above the question number. When all questions have been answered correctly, students will have solved the riddle.
This activity will get your students out of their seats, laughing and learning as they solve math problems and riddles!
As mentioned above, a colorful game board is also included so that you can use this activity in small group spiraled learning stations or guided math groups. (Refer to instruction for how to use.)
