Digital Math Mysteries are a fun and engaging activity where 2nd graders begin to the story, the word problems, and on the correct answer. If the correct answer is chosen, the story continues. If a wrong answer is chosen, a ‘stopper’ will tell them to go back to where they were working, and TRY AGAIN! Check out the video to see how this math mystery works!
There is also a link to a Google Forms version of this math mystery as well. However, it is not narrated and students will probably require help with the reading involved.
PLEASE NOTE: The forms are NOT editable. There is no need to view results, like in a quiz because students MUST get the answer correct before advancing to the next section.
This fun and engaging digital mystery is SELF-CORRECTING, NO PREP, and completely PAPERLESS. Just decide if you want your kids to work individually or in groups. Then, share the genial.ly link with your students on your digital learning management system and watch the excitement begin!
