How to Play:

Step 1: Print everything out. Print the puzzles out on different colored papers or card stock so they don’t get mixed up.

Step 2: Cut everything out. Cut them out ahead of time. A paper cutter saves time or having a parent volunteer help.

Step 3: Put the pieces all over the classroom for students to hunt down. Explain to students the goal is to find their color puzzle pieces and put their puzzle back together again.

Step 4 (optional): If putting one puzzle together isn’t enough for your class, have them try and do multiple puzzles. Once they put one puzzle together, give that team a point on the board. Let them put the pieces back out around the room for another team to find and then start looking for a different colored puzzle.

Different Ways to Play:

-Have kids do the puzzle on their ability level.

-Have kids try and complete all 8 puzzles.

-Give kids a time limit to complete the puzzles.

-Have kids play in partners, independently, or in teams.

-Give kids a time limit to solve each puzzle. If they don’t finish within the time limit, they have to either restart (mix it up again) or try a new puzzle.

My class had so much fun completing this math challenge and I hope yours does too!

Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
