This leaping frog KenKen® puzzle is a great way for your first grader to build his logical thinking skills. He'll need to create addition problems in order to solve for blanks within a grid. By using his knowledge of simple facts and a process of elimination approach, your first grader can practice their addition and problem solving at the same time! Here's how:

Using the digits 1-3 in this 3x3 puzzle, fill the small squares with digits so as not to repeat a digit in any row or column, and so that the digits within each heavily outlined area will equal that area’s corner number when combined using addition. For more information visit www.kenken.com.
