Subtraction Magic Squares is a fun way to practice or review subtraction skills. The squares can be done as a whole group, but are a great learning center activity.
This packet includes skill practice on:
~2 digit subtraction with and without renaming
~3 digit subtraction with and without renaming
~4 digit subtraction with and without renaming
~2,3, and 4 digit subtraction from numbers ending in zeroes
~3 and 4 digit subtraction from numbers with zeroes in the middle
The strategy for each of the 20 puzzles is the same. Cut out the 16 smaller squares and then reassemble them into a large 4 by 4 square in which all of the touching sides are equal - a Magic Square! When the Magic Square is complete, the wizards will be lined up around the outside edges of the square.
