• Use the included interactive notebook page as an interactive notebook activity that your students will love!
• Subtracting across zero puzzle pieces come pre-mixed up so that students can cut them out and not have prior knowledge of the answers.
• The subtracting across zero puzzle can be printed double sided with the puzzle on one side and the skill name on the other for ease of organizing and sorting.
• I suggest printing on coloured paper and laminating the puzzle pieces for durability.

I always get a cheer when these come out, definite class favorites! Students LOVE the puzzle aspect of this subtracting across zero math center.
