This is a riddle worksheet in which students use an answer bank to solve a (slightly cheesy) joke. They like this activity because it makes the math meaningful and FUN. Teachers like it because the answer bank gives students a tool to self-assess.
Because of the answer bank for students and answer sheet for teachers, this activity is great for home, school and students with special needs. Great for warm-ups, great for use with a substitute.
In this FUNsheet, students must subtract each of the fractions and match their answers to the simplified fraction in the answer in order to solve a riddle.
All FUNsheets are classroom-tested. Kids like this activities because they make the math meaningful, and FUN, and teachers like them because the answer bank gives students a tool to self-assess. Also a great tool for home-schooled students too!
