Product Description
Help hustle the elves along in their preparation for the holidays by having your students practice the skill of finding percents of quantities, and the whole given a part and the percent! Send your students on the Holiday Hustle, a Christmas-inspired math activity or learning center perfect for the month of December. Just print and play!

Two different sets of recording sheets and game cards are included on this file. I prefer to use the first set as an introductory, whole-class activity, and then use the second set as a learning center for the remainder of the season or month.

There are two methods of play; solely dependent upon the amount of time you have available in preparation of this fun activity. One method involves game cards, where one side of a paper card has a percentage problem, and the other side will have the correct answer. Students play by solving the problems that are face-up on a card, record their answers on a recording sheet, self-check the answer on the back, and if he or she is correct, they get to spin a paper-clip spinner and move along the trail of well-wrapped gifts.

The second method of play eliminates the use of the game cards, thus reducing the overall preparation time. Students use a single die to determine problems to solve on their recording sheets, independently self-check the answer with the corresponding answer key, and if he or she is correct, they get to spin a paper-clip spinner and move along the trail of well-wrapped gifts.

This file contains:

●suggested procedures and management for both methods of play (whole-class and learning center)

●2 Holiday Hustle game boards… they differ only in the designer wrapping paper.

●2 "finding the percent of a quantity" recording sheets with corresponding answer keys for the students to record their answers to the various questions they will solve during the game (and for teachers to have answer documentation)

●2 "finding the whole given a part and the percent" recording sheets with corresponding answer keys for the students to record their answers to the various questions they will solve during the game (and for teachers to have answer documentation)

●2 paper-clip spinners with 6 and 8 outcomes

●3 sets of 16 "finding the percent of a quantity" question cards and 16 corresponding answer cards

●3 sets of 16 "finding the whole given a part and the percent" question cards and 16 corresponding answer cards

Your students are certain to have a blast playing this game, all the while sharpening their ability to determine the percent of a quantity, and the whole given a part and the percent.

Enjoy!
