Quick puzzles can add a bit of funÂ to your math class any time of year.
I created a set of alien puzzlesÂ that you can use to have students find a number pattern and then solve the puzzles to reveal a math term!

There are 6 different kinds of puzzles – each has its own alien.
Choose from full color or black and white images. 
Students can use a blank form to create a new puzzle for classmates and receive a certificate. 
You can also find many kinds of puzzles online, including: Brainbox Logic Puzzles,Â Kid Number Puzzles, and number puzzlesÂ you generate atÂ Math Slice!
What other resources can we use to add fun puzzlesÂ to our math classes?
I love the idea of giving kids a challenge, usually the step up. Thanks for another great resource!
The images in this product look so fun! I like to challenge my kids with logic puzzles I found here: http://www.rinkworks.com/brainfood/c/logic.shtml.
Thanks for the great blog!
I’d forgotten about that resource. Check out the riddlesso easy to use and the answers will surprise you and your students! They are great for the intellectually gifted student who might otherwise not be able to shine in a classroom. Thanks for sharing.
