## Rainy Day Math Mystery Activity - 1st Grade Math Printable & Digital Worksheets

**SKU:**1st_Grade_Rainy_Day_Math_Myste

Rainy Day Math Mystery Activity - 1st Grade Math Worksheets Edition (Printable & Digital Worksheet Options included)

The Case of the Never-Ending Rain

Useful for a fun way to practice and review math skills during a rainy day at school. Easy prep! Just Print & Solve! Or go paperless with the new Google Slides option provided within your download.

Students must use their math skills to unlock clues. Then, use their powers of deduction to narrow down the solutions to fix the Weather Control Board that is stuck on the 'rain' setting.

Suggestion: Pace the clues one by one to keep the class at the same point. If using the clues in a different order, keep the list of the possible solutions away from students until all five clues are completed and discovered.

Optional VIDEO HOOK available to use to introduce students to this math mystery activity. Check out the preview section to preview the video. There is a written story article that can be used instead of the video if required.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preparation

- Print the student pages, staple or place in a folder, and your students are set to go.

- Have the video hook ready for viewing at the start of the lesson on an IWB, iPad or computer monitor screen.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Math Skills Required to Unlock Clues

There are five clues to crack to solve the mystery:

Clue 1: Read & Write Time (O'Clock and Half-Past)

Clue 2: Addition within 100 (No regrouping)

Clue 3: Word Problems (Add/Subtract within 20)

Clue 4: Subtraction within 100 (No regrouping)

Clue 5: Addition and Subtraction within 100 (No regrouping)

Students must use critical thinking skills to figure out what the clue is telling them to eliminate from the list of possibilities. Ensure students read and comprehend clues carefully!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Multiple Uses

- Suitable for independent, pairs, or group work.

- Use as part of your math centers, add to your sub tubs, make it part of your early finisher tasks, give for homework, or make it part of your classroom practice/review sessions.

I recommend pacing this activity by giving students one clue at a time. Once the whole class has completed a clue, then move on to the next clue either within the same lesson or the next math session. New math content presented? Make a lesson out of it by modeling the math before diving into the clue. I like to say, "We must learn something new before attempting the next clue."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How long will this activity take?

Time to complete will vary anywhere between 30mins - 2 hours or more! It mainly depends on how familiar your students are with the math mystery format, as well as how difficult they find math skills covered in the particular mystery. Please check the math skills outlined in the clues above to help determine suitability for your class.
