Brainteaser: Cube Riddle


Brainteasers can be a great activity to use in the classrooms, especially as a filler activity when you only have a few minutes to spare.  The puzzles below are a good warm up for a math class.  These activities can also be used as enrichment for students who have completed their work and are waiting for the next lesson to begin.

Click on the files below.  Each picture on the page represents an unfolded paper cube. Can you figure out which unfolded image could be constructed to form the picture shown? There is an upper level puzzle and a lower level puzzle.


After you figure out these puzzles try your skill on some of the brainteasers here!
