Missing Number Grid Puzzles | Grades 3-5


Build number sense and fact fluency with these engaging missing number puzzles!


Do you need a fun and engaging way to practice addition, subtraction, multiplication and place value? These unique grid puzzles will challenge your kids to make connections between addition/subtraction and multiplication/division to build number sense and fact fluency.

Rather than providing standard practice with operations using a worksheet or flashcards, engage your kids with challenging puzzles!

Use these puzzles with kids in grades 3, 4 or 5, depending on what skills they need to review or practice.

How to Solve the Puzzles:

Each grid shows a specific math operation that is used to complete the grid (addition, subtraction, multiplication).

Students then use that operation to fill in the missing numbers. Sometimes the sum/difference/product is missing and sometimes the addend/factor is missing, increasing the challenge!

In both the printable version and the version for Google Slides, a directions/example slide/page is shown so students can learn how the puzzles work.

In addition, whenever the operation changes or the puzzles get harder, there are 2 simple versions to remind students how the puzzles work and to practice the new operation.
