Do your students get excited when you tell them it's time to solve addition and subtraction equations? Of course they don't.
But they will if you use this fun, Safe Cracker worksheet!
Students can become world famous safe crackers! Your students will use the clues and their math skills to help crack the safes, in order to claim the prizes found inside.
Students are given three "clues", which are addition and subtraction equation problems, including traditional models, bar models, traditional equations, and word problems. 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: a treasure map, a golden ticket, an autographed football, ancient artifacts, and more!
