Do your students roll their eyes and groan when you tell them it's time to compare and order integers? Of course they do.
But they won't if you use this fun, Safe Cracker worksheet!
Students can become world famous safe crackers! When old safes are found or when people lose their combinations, they come to your students for help. Your students will use the clues to help crack the safes.
Students are given three "clues", which ask them to compare integers (find the greatest or find the least). The answers become the numbers in the safe combinations. When the three clues are solved, the safe is cracked! There are a total of 15 problems, but they are grouped into 5 "combinations", so your students will look at this as a 5 question assignment.
The rewards include: keys to a jet, rubies, ancient treasures, a luxury car, and the deed to a mansion!
Make comparing integers fun with this activity! Use it as a quick warm up, a fun formative assessment, or a 10-minute partner activity.
