Skyscrapers!

I’m late in blogging about this, but I really wanted to share: my new favorite start of the year math activity was Skyscrapers! Like Sudoku or KenKen, Skyscrapers are a type of latin square. A full break down of the problems can be found on the wonderful Amie Albrecht’s blog here: Skyscrapers.

I had students build the skyscrapers on paper with candy (which they could then eat). Here’s a few photos:

The students were instantly engaged and asked for more! They have taken to downloading free apps of more Skyscraper puzzles on their phones and showing me their accomplishments.

Thanks Amie!
