This activity can be used in small group, as a center, as a whole class task, or even as an informal assessment. The students answer questions about the holidays and color an elf according to their answers. For example, "Do you like hot cocoa?" If the students answer "yes," they color the pants polka dot, and if they answer "no," they color the pants striped. After, they look up the cost for each item on their elf's outfit. They must draw the coins for each part of the outfit. As a challenge, students can calculate the total cost of the elf's outfit and calculate the change they would receive if they paid with a $5.00 bill.
