Introducing.....Secret Agent Math!

Introducing a super, fun math activity called Secret Agent Around the World.  
Secret Agent Math is one of my students' favorites.  It is a round-robin activity in which the students practice a specific skill.  As Secret Agents, the students travel around the world to different countries collecting clues (math problems) and solving them.  Each solution will lead them to a clue in another country. Once they've solved all the clues, they have accomplished their mission.  To make it extra-fun, have the students choose a secret agent name and use it when communicating with them.  

The following is an example of two locations the "Secret Agents" will visit to solve the math clues.  It shows a stop in Canada with a subtraction clue to solve.  The solution will take the "Secret Agent" to the next location, which is Mexico. 

The best part of the activity is that it gets the students up and moving around the classroom, yet they have a specific task to accomplish.   

Secret Agent Math makes an awesome Math Center or Guided Math Station.  Here are the directions that come with each set.

I've placed two Secret Agent Math activities in my TPT store:  Subtraction with 0's and Polygon Attributes.   Look for additional math skills to be added in the future.  Do you have any suggestions for math skills you would like to see?  I would love it if you would comment with your suggestions.  As always, I love reading your feedback!
