Mazes are such fun to work! They are great short activities for fast finishers, or for use as morning seat work or a Valentine's Day puzzle center. There are twelve moderate to slightly hard mazes (keys included) here to keep your students actively thinking.
So, why use mazes in the classroom? Lots of reasons! Working mazes helps children grow in several ways. First, help your child to work on his problem solving skills, such as planning and brainstorming various strategies (e.g. starting from the beginning of the maze or working backwards from the end of maze).
Second, they help develop fine motor control. Mazes us to control his pencil through the maze without hitting the black lines.
And then finally, there’s visual motor skills. Mazes require students to use their eyes to scan the worksheet in order to find possible solutions. Scanning is a great skill used for reading and writing, as it is important to scan from the left side of the paper to the right side.
