Product Description

It's more than just a color by number activity, or a collection of math worksheets. It's more than just a Christmas art project or an escape room. It's an exciting rare combination - a unique, gracefully differentiated, 5th grade Christmas math resource unlike anything your students have seen before!

Plus, it is almost no prep from you, is differentiated for a diverse learning group, and is genuinely fun and creative at the same time. And it grades itself.

Nice, right? :)

And there's a prize at the end of the activity! Plus there's also a bonus PEMDAS poster and cards.

Here's how this activity works:

There's three different festive worksheets. Each worksheet contains 24 math problems covering a different Common Core Mathematics Standard for 5th grade so you can differentiate between classes or individual students:

• Division

• Decimals

• Order of Operations

There's also a color-by-number page, and folding instructions to turn the coloring page into an origami Christmas elf - the lovely prize!

Based on their answers to the math problems, students use the key provided to color in the elf-themed color-by-number page. Cut it out, fold it up cootie catcher-style (instructions with diagrams provided), and there's a cool origami green elf as a prize.

Regardless of which worksheet students receive, the correct answers will lead them to complete the coloring page the same way to create the origami Christmas elf.

It's self-grading! If the students did not solve the equations correctly, the coloring of the elf will be clearly incorrect. And it's not obvious beforehand how to color the elf - it may LOOK obvious, but it is not!

All of the answers are included, even a properly colored-in elf. All you have to provide is markers or colored pencils and scissors. No physical locks or Google forms required!

As a bonus we have thrown in our order of operations (PEMDAS) poster and set of cards for individual students. It's a great reminder on how order of operations works. We've seen posters like this for \$3 or more - but they are yours for free in this pack. (We just thought it would be fun to have a Christmas-themed poster to include!)

• Kids can solve the math worksheets independently or work in small groups for team-building.
• Every worksheet page is black and white so it's easy on your printer (there are a couple of color answer key pages if you want to project them and discuss as a class afterwards).
• Your students will get a prize they can take home with them.
• Teaches division, decimals and order of operations using Common Core standards.
