This activity requires NO PREP, student and teacher documents included.
It is a riddle worksheet where students have an answer bank and they use that to solve a (slightly cheesy) joke. Kids like this activity because it makes the math meaningful and FUN. Teachers like them because the answer bank gives students a tool to self-assess.
Because of answer banks for students and answer sheets for adults, this activity is great for home, school and special education!
In this worksheet, students simplify 16 different square root radicals to answer the joke.
