Students become math sleuths as they work their way up these engaging pyramid puzzles by solving math problems! When students reach the top of the pyramid, they use the final answers to crack the code and reveal the answer to a riddle. Topics include all the essentials—number patterns, place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication facts, time, money, measurement, and more. The self-checking format makes these activities perfect for homework, independent work, or any time!
Grades 2 - 3
Decide ahead of time whether you want to do the pyramid puzzles with the class as a whole, or have students work alone, in pairs, or in groups. Then choose a puzzle and make a copy for each student. For whole-class or small-group lessons, you might use an overhead projector or interactive whiteboard!
