In this Subtraction Math Mystery Activity – Case of The Dream Snatcher (GRADE 4) – students will be practicing subtraction skills (with larger numbers) to solve this nightmare of a mystery! This fun and engaging math activity will motivate your students during math class.

Easy prep! Just Print & Solve! Or go paperless with the new Google Slides option provided within your download.

NEW - Distance Learning Update: I've added a Word Document within the folder that contains a Google Doc link to share this resource with your students via Google Classroom or Drive. Parts of the pages are editable so that your students can complete without having to print the pages. Please note, you will need to make a copy of the Google Slides to your drive before you can edit.

Preparation

- No Prep required! Print the student pages, staple or place in a folder, and your students are set to go.

- Have the video hook ready for viewing at the start of the lesson on an IWB, iPad or computer monitor screen.

- Editable hideouts list included: This enables you to change the location names and alter the mystery outcome. Two alternative pre-made lists also included for a quick swap out.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Math Skills Required to Unlock Clues

There are five clues to crack to solve the mystery:

Clue 1: Subtracting 3-digit, 4-digit and 5-digit numbers

Clue 2: Subtracting 4-digit, 5-digit and 6-digit numbers

Clue 3: Subtraction Word Problems (3-digit, 4-digit and 5-digit numbers)

Clue 4: Subtraction Input/Output Tables

Clue 5: Subtraction 4-digit, 5-digit and 6-digit numbers

Students must use critical thinking skills to figure out what the clue is telling them to eliminate from the list of possibilities.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Multiple Uses

- Suitable for independent, pairs, or group work.

- Use as part of your math centers, add to your sub tubs, make it part of your early finisher tasks, give for homework, or make it part of your classroom practice/review sessions.

I recommend pacing this activity by giving students one clue at a time. Once the whole class has completed a clue, then move on to the next clue either within the same lesson or the next math session. New math content presented? Make a lesson out of it by modeling the math before diving into the clue. I like to say, "we must learn something new before attempting the next clue."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How long will this activity take?

Time to complete will vary anywhere between 30mins - 2 hours or more! It mainly depends on how familiar your students are with the math mystery format, as well as how difficult they find math skills covered in the particular mystery. Please check the math skills outlined in the clues above to help determine suitability for your class.
