Product Description
This activity is a fun way to get students into the holiday spirit while still having them practice important math skills!

Aligned to Common Core State Standard 5.NF.1

This file contains a Christmas/winter-themed color-coding activity, requiring students to add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers with unlike denominators.

The winter scene is divided into sections, each with a fraction problem to solve. Students solve a problem and color the section the shade that corresponds to their answer, using the provided legend.

There are 26 problems, some that result in a sum or difference that needs to be simplified or rewritten as a mixed number.

A few subtraction problems require borrowing (or rewriting the problem as improper fractions).

An answer key is provided in the form of a completed sheet showing the sections colored the correct shade.

I hope you and your students enjoy!
