I use this activity as a fast finsher's project during our Zoo-quation Adventure. At the end of my Algebra Unit, students work through several Algebra puzzles as a team. This is lots of fun for the students and great practice for perseverance.

Students travel through the zoo solving problems and searching for clues to solve duck's quack ups. They work together as a cooperative team in their quest to persevere. Zooquation student teams solve various mathematical puzzles earning keys. Your students learn algebraic skills and the value of addition, subtraction, and logic, while having the enjoyment of discovering the magic of mathematical puzzles.
