Snowflake Adding Maze

In this 3rd grade Christmas math challenge, the aim is to find the path through the maze that makes the correct total.

As you go through the maze, you add up the numbers in each snowflake.

Each maze has a different target total to try to make.

Christmas Tree Adding Challenge

These 3rd grade Christmas math worksheets are all about adding pairs of numbers.

Each 'leaf' of the Christmas tree is equal to the sum of the two leaves under it.

So you have to add up each pair of leaves underneath to find the totals above.

Puzzle 3B involves adding pairs of numbers up to 50 and multiples of 10 up to 280.

Puzzle 3C involves adding pairs of numbers and finding differences within 50.

Puzzle 3D involves adding pairs of numbers and finding differences within 70.

Puzzles 3E involves using reasoning and trial and improvement strategies to investigate number patterns.

If you want children to challenge themselves, then get them to use our Christmas Tree Challenge template and choose their own numbers to put on the bases of the trees and then fill them in with their own values.

Christmas Tree Adding and Subtracting Puzzle

This 3rd grade Christmas math puzzle is all about counting on and back in different size steps.

Puzzle 3B involves counting on by 9s and counting back by 4s.
