Christmas Around the World Math Centers will take your themed studies to a WHOLE NEW level this year. I don't know about you, but I love everything to match across the board. However, one subject always seemed to be lacking when it came to riding the Christmas/Holidays Around the World train . . . MATH. I never came across any resources that were directly linked to countries and their traditions. Therefore, I just filled in with holiday themed math. It was okay, but I always felt like my unit wasn’t quite complete. Well, it FINALLY dawned on me that I could create something to fill the math gap . . . and it only took me nine years to figure it out.
This packet contains two or three standards-based math games, centers, and/or activities for each country included in this first collection (Australia, Brazil, Canada, England/UK, and France). I also decided to give the back story on each activity. . . it’s called Making Connections. A little blurb in each game write up can serve as a quick reference as to why your kids are playing this game. It quickly outlines a tradition, custom, or fact that relates to the activity the children are about to do.
This is the first packet in this math center collection
