To complete the puzzle, your kids will try to solve the addition equation. Then they’ll find the puzzle piece with the correct number and match it with the equation problem on the mat.
The mega puzzle consists of 4 quadrants. The marks on the corner of each one will help you quickly set up the puzzle. You can tape the back of the four quadrants together and fold them for easy storing.
This set includes the puzzle in 4 levels of difficulty:
- Level 1 includes adding a one-digit to a two-digit number, no regrouping
- Level 2 includes adding a one-digit to a two-digit number, with regrouping
- Level 3 includes adding a multiple of 10 to a one and two-digit number
- Level 4 includes adding 2 two-digit numbers
There is another way you can play this game!
If you prefer, you can place the puzzle pieces upside down instead and write the numbers on the back of each puzzle piece.
This way, the puzzle will turn into a “mystery” one and kids won’t be able to recognize, what the completed picture will look like, until the puzzle is completed. That can be fun too! That’s why this pack includes additional version without numbers on puzzle pieces.
TO PREP: Print out the puzzles. Print them on cardstock for more durability. Cut them out.
TO PLAY: Kids will try to find the puzzle piece with the correct number and match it with the equation problem on the mat. Have fun!
