It's time for your kiddos to be SUPER SLEUTHS and crack some codes (while doing math at the same time)!
There are 30 different puzzles in this pack (10 addition, 10 subtraction, 10 mixed). You can print one of each for your students and have them all be different OR print multiple copies of the same puzzle to distribute.
Students complete all the math problems in the squares first (18 problems per page). Once they do this, at the bottom of the page, there is a joke for them to figure out.
Students will then be 'crackin’ the codes!'
How to crack the codes (AKA how to solve the jokes):
**FYI: The answers from the sheet itself WILL appear in the actual joke answers. This is done for self correction purposes.**
Students look for the specific numbers using the A-Z line on the right side of the page to fill in the joke at the bottom. For example, if they have the number 87 in a space on the bottom, they would look along the side to find out which letter equals number 87. They then place this letter on the line above “87” and repeat for the rest of the number/letter combinations. An example has been provided in the pack on page 3.
After all letters are placed above the numbers, students will receive an answer to the joke. You may require students to turn these sheets in for assessment, a quick grade, or it could be taken home after completing the sheet for fun.
Answer keys for EACH page has been provided for you or for self-checking, as well.
This pack is aligned with the Common Core State Standards of 1.NBT.C.4 and 2.NBT.B.5
