Four seasons of mystery-picture puzzles in a single download.
For each mystery picture there are four levels to choose from. In any group there may be children who are working at different stages of learning. Differentiation will allow you to give each student the practice she really needs to keep improving.
In the basic puzzles, the numbers are given as sums of tens and ones (expanded notation). In the next level, the students are asked to compute +1, -1, +10 or -10 of a number on the hundreds chart. The intermediate puzzles contain simple sums and differences within 100: either adding/subtracting within the same ten or adding/subtracting whole tens. The advanced puzzles contain more general additions and subtractions of two-digit numbers and they are designed to develop mental math skills.
For level three and four, you can print out the puzzle in a single page, or you can choose to also print and additional "show your work" page where the students have space to write down their answer so that errors can be easily tracked down if something looks wrong.
I marked the worksheets with one, two, three or four elephant symbols, depending on the skills required, to make it easy to pick the right level. In a center, this can allow students to easily pick the work most appropriate for them.
