# Magic Square Puzzles

If you're looking for a great way to excite and engage your math students, magic square puzzles are a no-brainer!  Magic Squares help kids use their brains and have fun reviewing addition, multiplication, fractions, decimals and more.

The magic squares you'll find here range from the smallest, 3 by 3, to 6 by 6 magic squares. And they involve addition, multiplication, fractions, or decimals. So grab a pencil and get your game face on!

Ideas for Teachers and Parents

• You could introduce the concept of Magic Squares to students by passing out a filled out a magic square to each student or a small group of students and have them look at it and ask if they notice anything about it.
• You could start your student/s out on the smaller (3 by 3) magic squares. You'll notice that the easier puzzles have 4 or 5 numbers already filled in. The harder puzzles have less numbers filled in.
• Have students pair up and have them work on Magic Squares as a team to compete with other teams to see which team can successfully fill their Magic Square first.
