PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These six self-checking riddles are a great resource for classwork, centers, or homework. My kids love doing riddles like these (though I think what they love even more is telling me how corny the jokes are). I, of course, love being able to quickly grade an entire stack of papers!

Common Core State Standards for Mathematics addressed:
Numbers and Operations in Base Ten (5.NBT)
Understand the place value system.
• Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left. (5.NBT.1)

The six activity sheets (keys included) focus on comparing the value of digits in side-by-side places. This is a key standard in the Grade 5 Math Common Core State Standards domain of Number and Operations in Base Ten, and one that has proven challenging for my own students to master. I designed these riddles to provide my own students with some easy and fun practice with this standard, and I hope they help your students as they have mine.
