Magic Squares Worksheet
A Magic Squares worksheet, like most worksheet activities, is always very popular with bothteachers and kids. As the author of a widely-acclaimed book about
MagicSquares
, I fully appreciate that magic squares for kids canbe a great way to learn about basic number relationships,and plan one day to write a follow-up book on this verysubject.I am also aware that there are several Magic Squaresworksheets available on the Internet already, so, notwishing to duplicate what others have already created, I puttogether a free Magic Square worksheet that approachesthe subject from a different perspective.While this does involve magic squares, there is a minimumof maths involved, although basic addition will be requiredto successfully complete this fun worksheet.What makes this worksheet different to the others is that it is also a three-dimensionalconstruction puzzle, which adds a new and unexpected aspect to the whole thing.Here is what the children will need to do:1.Cut out six Magic Squares from a piece of paper(which is provided in the download file).2.Create a three-dimensional cube using these sixMagic Squares so that the entire cube becomes a"solid" entity. (Don
’
t worry, full instructions, includingphotographs, are included!)3.Make sure that each face of the resulting cube is aperfect Magic Square in its own right, with a "magictotal" of 34.4.Find out how many combinations of four squares onany one face of the finished cube add up to 34. (Forexample, each row, each column and each corner diagonal will add up to 34, so that
’
sten combinations to get them started.)The kids will need access to some child-safe scissors, but everything else they will require (i.e.full construction instructions and Magic Squares template) is in the Magic Squares Worksheet,which is an Adobe PDF file. Although not strictly necessary, you may want to provide the kids with some old playing cards sothat they can practise constructing the three-dimensional puzzle without damaging the suppliedMagic Squares that they will need to cut out.So, what will kids learn from this particular worksheet?Well, they will learn co-ordination and manual dexterity, asthe construction of this three-dimensional puzzle doesrequire a steady pair of hands.Once they master the knack of building the puzzle, they willthen learn to reinforce their basic numeracy and additionskills as they make sure that each of the six faces on theMagic Squares cube (or is that a Magic Cube?) forms a
complete 4×4 Magic Square, all of which must add up to
the same total (i.e. 34), of course.There are many ways in which the puzzle can be put together, but not all of them will lead to thecorrect solution.Finally, they will learn to spot patterns in the numbers and further hone their mental arithmetic
