Sudoku puzzles are great for young children. They require problem solving and critical thinking skills. I wasn't sure if my kindergarten students would be able to do these at first. I was pleasantly surprised that every student was able to complete the 3 x 3 puzzles. Once they were shown how to do one, they could do the others on their own.
To see if your students can do Sudoku puzzles try my free Easy Shapes Sudoku
- 6 different 3 x 3 puzzles with 3 shapes missing from each.
- The missing shapes can be cut and paste onto the puzzle board.
- Each puzzle is in color and Black and White.
- Symbols Used: American flag, Liberty Bell, eagle, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Statue of Liberty, White House
Once students understand the concept of the game, these puzzles can be used as a fast finisher or as a file folder game. I will be developing more Sudoku puzzles with different themes.
