PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Solving Linear Systems around Christmas time (Winter Break)? Add a little holiday spice to systems practice with this Christmas-themed math activity. Students solve 26 systems. Then they will save grading time (on winter break!) for the teacher by using their answers to reveal a hidden message on one Christmas-themed greeting card.

The Math:
Substitution, Basic Elimination, or Advanced Elimination – find three versions of the 26 systems practice page. All three versions have the same solutions. Therefore, you can easily use a combination of versions and meet students’ personal needs without any hiccup in the activity (if you want).

★Common Core Standards: REI.C.6

The Holiday Twist:
Along with the worksheet of 26 problems, find 8 greeting card messages in this product. Two of the 8 unashamedly use Christmas in the message; another is a joke about X-mas. No I’m not telling; it is that good. These messages are grouped together so that one could choose not to use them. Also find one very generic message for any student whom traditionally celebrates other holidays (or doesn’t celebrate). I enjoy hand selecting the recipient of the message, matching the message to the student’s personality.

Remember when the students turn in their work they are essentially sending the teacher the Christmas card. “Oh what thoughtful students I have!”

Teacher tested; student approved.
Algebra Simplified
