Most of them are endgame positions, and most of them are fairly simple.  I used them for the elementary school chess club that I teach.

I do not plan on posting the answer key.  Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions about any of them.

Please refrain from posting any of the answers in the blog comments, as that would ruin it for anyone trying it.

Good luck and hope you find it useful.
