Groundhog Day Math Freebie!

Hi, Teaching Friends!

I love Groundhog Day at school. It's just a fun, one-day deal, with no great push to cover related content. There are lots of fun ways to connect science (animals, shadows, seasons) and a growing number of awfullly cute read-alouds. Plus, the word "predict" can be squeezed into conversation numerous times during the day. Some targeted repetition never hurts, right? :)

Here's a fun freebie - the latest one at my TpT store!  Your students will be mini-math detectives as they evaluate numerical expressions. The goal of the elimination puzzle on each of the eight task cards is to use the clues to cross out three numbers. The remaining number shows where Mr. Groundhog's shadow is hidden.

Just click here or on any of the pictures above to get your copy!

If you and your students enjoy these riddles, you'll be happy to hear that I've been obsessing over making them lately.  Each of these sets has 24 task cards, a page for students to record their answers, and an answer key.  Here are some of the results of my obsession :

Did I exaggerate?  Not really. :)  Chances are there will be more to come, too.

Happy Teaching!
