Mathematics Brain Teasers - Lower Grades

6 pages|Grades: 1 - 3

A set of 10 fun brain teasers for your students in lower grades.

Give your students one brain teaser a day or a week to try and solve. As a suggestion, you could have a solutions box at the front of the classroom.

Your students would then write their name and answer on a piece of paper and drop it into the box. At the end of the day or week you would reveal the answer.

The pictures are showing $ problems but when I download it shows pounds. Am I doing something wrong, I can’t see an option button?

Do you have a version suitable for UK, with £ rather than $?
