Maths Mazes (Friends of Ten)

PDF | 6 pages|Grades: 1 - 2

A set of friends of ten mazes where students find missing addends to solve the maze.

Can your students solve the jester’s riddle and find their way to the castle? 🏰

Printable Friends of Ten Activity

Making ten is a fundamental maths strategy that helps with mental computation. This worksheet allows students to demonstrate their ability to recall friends of ten.

Three different mazes are included in the resource with an answer page for each.

Missing Addends

The castle jester has locked doors leading up to the castle. Students will solve the missing addends on the note to determine which doors are locked.

Then they will draw a path leading from the start to the finish at the castle.

A perfect addition to a maths groups rotation or fast finisher activity.

Extension Tasks

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

  • Have students add the numbers of the unlocked doors.
  • Get students to write the related number facts for each friend of ten.
  • Task students with writing simple word problems for each question on the back of the sheet.
