Math Game Monday ~ Cross Number Puzzle & A Blog Award



It's time for Math Game Monday!

This week I'm sharing an online game I found that I really, really like!

It's not fancy, but it requires critical thinking skills to complete...and it's fun!!!

Cross Number Puzzle from Math is Fun combines crossword puzzle-type clues with math problems.


{This is the cute little picture on the home page...so you can see there are many, many categories with many, many activities and games in each one!}



{Here's a screenshot for the game I'm featuring this week.}


  • You can choose to use small, medium, or large numbers for different grade levels and student ability so there is built in differentiation.  I LOVE that!
  • The game is timed so students could try to better their time on each round.
  • There are hints available because you can't always just start with 1 Across and keep going.  Sometimes the starting point is not so obvious!
  • You can PRINT the game...or several different versions...and have them for early finishers, enrichment, or as a center activity!
