Skip count your way through 3 different mazes that focus on number sequencing.
A Nautical Spin on Skip Counting 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 by twos, fives, and tens, starting from zero
- Maze 2: skip counting by twos, threes, and fives starting from any point
- Maze 3: increasing and decreasing skip counting 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:
- math center activity
- fast finisher activity
- whole-class review (via smartboard)
Have students who need a greater challenge create complete maze three and then create their own skip counting maze.
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.
