Ordering Numbers: Whole Numbers (1-20) Puzzle

Common Core Grade Level: 
Packet includes: 
Four "jokes" that students solve by ordering numbers (from 1-20).


Students order sets of numbers (from 7 to 11 numbers in a set). Each number is associated with a letter. Students order the numbers and then write the letters in the same order. Each set of numbers solves a joke, such as "What do bees chew?" "Bumble gum." 


Students should be able to order numbers up to 20. Students must also be able to read at grade level to solve and understand the jokes.
