Subtraction Puzzle Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a combination of a math and coloring activity designed for educational purposes. It contains a series of subtraction problems within sections of a larger image, each section labeled with a problem for the student to solve. Once the student calculates the difference for each problem, they use a color key at the bottom of the page to fill in the section with the corresponding color, with different colors representing the numbers from 3 to 16. This creates an interactive and enjoyable learning experience, as the correct coloring based on the correct answers will reveal a pattern or image.

The worksheet’s primary objective is to enhance students’ skills in subtraction, specifically focusing on subtracting numbers within 20. It also serves to associate numerical values with colors, adding a visual aspect to the learning of arithmetic. The activity is designed to reinforce the student’s mental math abilities and their understanding of the relationship between numbers through subtraction. Furthermore, this worksheet encourages the development of attention to detail and following directions, as the final picture’s appearance is contingent on the accuracy of their calculations and coloring.
