Great activity for winter theme/unit! In this activity students have to subtract numbers up to 10. They solve simple subtraction equations. They have to find the snowman's hat with the correct answer. For example, the body of the snowman has a math problem (9-4) and the students have to find the hat with the correct answer of 5. Each hat has three possible subtraction equations that equal that answer. Print on card stock, laminate for durability and use at a math center or small group teacher led instruction. Great for Kindergarten students or first graders! This activity also comes with a worksheet very similar to the activity where students make up their own subtraction equation snowman. Also included are extra blank snowman for the teacher to add any equations which students struggle with. Check out our snowman literacy activities too!
