Skip count your way through these mazes that focus on number sequencing.
A Nautical Spin on Number Sequencing Worksheets
Ahoy, mateys! Ready to set sail and skip count through an archipelago? 🏝
Students will use their knowledge of number patterns to find paths that follow set number sequencing rules.
There are three versions of the maze included in the resource. The mazes are differentiated as follows:
- Maze 1: skip counting number sequences by twos, fives and tens starting from zero
- Maze 2: skip counting number sequences by twos, threes and fives starting from any point
- Maze 3: increasing and decreasing skip counting number sequences by fours, sevens and nines starting from any point.
Answer pages are included with your download to make marking fast and easy!
Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
In addition to individual student work time, use this worksheet as a:
- maths group rotation
- fast finisher activity
- whole-class review (via smartboard)
Have students who need a greater challenge complete maze three and then create their own skip counting maze using the editable Microsoft Word version of the resource.
Provide concrete materials to students who need extra support completing the first maze. This will allow them to count physical objects as they navigate the maze.
