PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I am so excited to share this project with you!! It is definitely a hit amongst my students :) This is a fun, cumulative math project to use during the Christmas season. It encompasses skills that 5th grade students have covered in math throughout the semester including: division, decimals, percents, and graphing. It also encourages students to be think of others during a time that is often focused inward.

For this project your class will imagine that they have received a generous donation this Christmas season! Students will practice thinking of others by using this money to bless others. Students will pick 4 Angel ornaments (included). On each ornament is a person who is in need this Christmas season. Students will pick 4 Angels at random and will be responsible for “shopping around” to find gifts for their Christmas angels. Using online ads and magazine/newspaper ads, they will cut out or print the items you would purchase for each person. (Note: no money is actually spent in this project!) On each ornament, it will inform you of the person’s age, gender, needs, and wants to help guide "purchases". The total budget is $200 per student. Students do not need to spend the same amount on each person, but must spend all of the money (at least $195) without going over.

I have this set up to be an "At Home" project, however it can easily be adapted to be done in class.

Included in this package...

- Student instructions to set the scene (helpful for parents too!) -- I have included a PDF of this as well as an editable Word document in case you need to change any of the wording. It is designed for a Christian school, but easily adaptable for public.

- Project Layout: detailed description of what each page of the project needs to be.

- 2 worksheets to scaffold the students in setting a budget, analyzing budgets, determining percentages, creating graphs, etc.

- A final grading rubric out of 100 points.

- 54 angel Ornaments. I print 2 copies of each onto cardstock to have enough for all students. You can then either display them onto a bulletin board, lay them out on a table, or even get a fake tree and hang them on it!! How fun would that be!!

I truly hope you enjoy this product! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help adapt this to work in your classroom.
