Christmas math activities with a fun elf as a take-home prize! This Christmas math escape room was designed especially for 5th grade -- it covers decimals, division, and order of operations. Each topic can be used independently, so if you have kids that need help with one area only (like decimals), you can just use that part of the activity. It's easily differentiated so everyone can have fun!

A Christmas escape room like this is more than Christmas math worksheets. It's more than just a color-by-number Christmas elf craft. It's an exciting rare combination of these fun activities - a unique, gracefully differentiated Christmas math activity with a super fun prize!

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 take-home prize at the end of the escape room activity! Plus there's also a bonus PEMDAS poster and cards.

Here's how this Christmas math activity works:

There are three different Christmas math worksheets. Each math worksheet contains 24 math problems covering a different TEKS or Common Core Mathematics Standard for 5th grade:

  • Division

  • Decimals

  • Order of Operations

Choose any Christmas theme worksheet you want to work on --- each is about an hour-long activity. 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 prize. So it is easy to differentiate between classes or individual students - just give them the math worksheet that fits their skill-building needs!

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.

It's self-grading! If the students did not solve the math problems 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 of 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 and TEKS standards.
