A set of puzzling mazes that require addition and subtraction skills to solve.

These addition and subtraction mazes will engage your students from the beginning.

## Fun Educational Mazes

There are three mazes included in the resource. Choose to give all your students the same maze to work on at the same time or provide a mix of all three.

They are a perfect activity for a maths group rotation any time of year! The combination of basic operations and logical thinking will keep your students engaged while you can focus on guided maths.

Answers for each maze are included in the resource. Coloured lines are used to indicate the path of each shape. It is suggested that these pages be printed in colour or viewed digitally.

## One- and Two-digit Addition and Subtraction

Students must add and subtract one- and two-digit numbers within each maze to reach specific targets.

They are given the starting number and must navigate the maze finding the missing addends and subtrahends to be successful.

## Extending Beyond the Maze

There are multiple ways to extend students on each maze. Here are some suggestions:

• Have students write a multi-step word problem for each path the shapes take to successfully complete the maze.
• Give students the task of finding the path with each shape leaving with the maximum and minimum possible numbers.
• The triangle in Maze 2 can end the maze with a negative number. Have students alter the signs of the maze so that all shapes can leave this maze with the same negative number.

A-maze-ing! (*Not associated with the incredibly nostalgic kids’ game show of the ’90s)
