KenKen Puzzles

KenKen puzzles are a great way for children to gain practice with single digit operations while also gaining experience with problem solving and logical reasoning. KenKens are similar to Sudoku puzzles, but with operations. We have prepared packets of KenKens sorted by size and type of operations used, so that each child can find their own appropriate level of challenge. Each of these pdf packets contains several pages of KenKen puzzles. More KenKens can be found at, Educators can sign up here for weekly emails of KenKen packets. KenKen books are available online or at your local bookstore.
