Your class is trying to escape a snowed in North Pole and save Christmas! Santa has lost some of his gifts. He must find them and get out of the North Pole, before Christmas is ruined. Can your students solve all the puzzles and escape the snowed in North Pole? As students complete each puzzle, they are to color the coordinating gift they find. This is a fun game where students work together and review key math standards.

Students will review adding and subtracting decimals. Questions will go no higher than hundredths. They will review word problems with adding and subtracting decimals as well.

When the gifts are all found, students will be just about finished with the game. The last thing students will do is find the congratulations page to escape. The page is hidden near anything red in your classroom.
