Product Description

::HOLIDAY AROUND THE WORLD EDITION::

This cross-curricular unit is a perfect addition to your Holiday Around the World unit in December!

This resource is super LOW PREP which I LOVE. I simply print these out on colored paper, laminate, THEN cut along the lines into strips. It’s so much easier to laminate them first, and cut them out second. Next, I rubber band or bind each set together using a mini binder clip. Once I’m ready to place these out for the students to use during math rotations, I’ll just place them in a small basket.

::HOW TO USE THIS RESOURCE::

This resource includes 25 different puzzles that cover the following 3rd Grade Math Skills:

• value of a digit
• expanded form (6 digit)
• word form (6 digit)
• comparing numbers
• rounding to nearest 10, 100, 1,000
• multiply by 2s, 5s, 10s
• number patterns
• fact families (multiplication/division)
• three digit addition with regrouping
• three subtraction with regrouping
• three digit subtraction across zeroes
• estimate sum or difference (three digit)
• counting money (up to \$5.00)
• arrays (multiplication)
• word problems (addition subtraction, multiplication--Holiday Around the World Themed word problems)

First, the students answer all 9 questions. Using a thin dry erase marker, students will write the answer in the rectangular box. Once they’ve answered all 9 questions, they will put the puzzle strips in order from LEAST to GREATEST. {See example in the PREVIEW} If they have answered the problems correctly and have placed the numbers in order correctly, a HOLIDAY AROUND THE WORLD FACT will be revealed. {LOVE being able to tie in so many skills at once!}

I hold my students ACCOUNTABLE for everything so I have them record their answers on the recording sheet. Once they’ve checked their answers with the answer key (provided in the file). {I laminate all the answer keys and place them on a ring for students to access easily} I have my students glue their recording sheet in the “Centers” section of their math journal. You could also just send it home once it’s been checked/graded.

I also have my students keep track of the facts they reveal {sneaking in a little writing!} You can either have them write their facts in their math journal/writing journal/any journal of your choice or use the booklet I’ve provide in this file. I love using the booklet. OR you don’t need to have your students write their fact at all—it’s totally up to you.

I hope you like this resource! I will be making an Unlock the Fact Math Puzzle set for ALL 3rd grade skills!

The 2nd Grade VERSION can be found here! The facts are the same but the skills are different.
