Please note: There has been some question as to the appropriateness of this worksheet because it uses the word "HELL." I have added a 2nd version which uses the word "HECK" in its place, and I'll leave it up to you to decide which version to use.
This activity requires NO PREP, student and teacher documents included.

It is a riddle worksheet where students have an answer bank and they use that to solve a (slightly cheesy) joke. Kids like this activities because they make the math meaningful, and FUN, and teachers like them because the answer bank gives students a tool to self-assess.
Because of answer banks for students and answer sheets for adults, this activity is great for homeschool and special ed students too!
This is a simple activity I used to introduce arithmetic and geometric sequences and series. The activity could be used for students of all grade levels because it really only requires pattern recognition. Students are given the first 3 numbers of a pattern and asked to find the next three. They solve the joke: "How do you make holy water?" to which the answer is "you just boil the hell/heck out of it." I have made 2 different versions, a PG and PG-13 version depending on if you think hell is OK in your classroom or not.
