These math mysteries are designed for second, third and fourth grade students. Could also be used with struggling fifth grade students that need a little extra work and reinforcement in adding (or advanced, gifted and talented second grade). I also leave some of the mysteries for my sub teacher.
Math Mysteries are an independent escape room (or crack the code) type of activity where instead of using locks, students identify suspects with puzzles and word problems.
