Includes a fun differentiated Christmas maths, two part project for grade 4, 5 and 6 students.
It serves as more than a thematic activity and requires students to use maths skills and higher order thinking skills to plan a party.
In part 1, students work individually or in groups on differentiated maths planning black line masters. NOTE: This can be done for fun and without a party to follow. The tasks are as follows and are linked to their relevant maths concept:
* Mistletoe Location - coordinates
* Food and Drinks - operations and measurement
* Decorations - symmetry
* Game 1 - operations
* Game 2 - volume
* Party Craft - perimeter and area
* Favorus - operations and measurement
* Christmas Party Advent Calendar - time
* Party Invitations - right angles
Some coloured options are included.
If you decide to have a real party, in part two students use the information from part 1 to prepare for the party!
This pack contains:
•“Plan a Christmas Party” teacher’s notes.
•“Plan a Christmas Party” black line masters.
•An easier version of the project for different levels of abilities.
•Challenge questions for different levels of abilities.
•“Prepare for a Christmas Party” teacher’s notes.
•“Prepare for a Christmas Party” black line masters.
NOTE: This project is designed to make teaching easy for you and requires your students to do the work to plan a Christmas class party. Most of the preparation requires paper and cardboard and there are only a few extra resources required. It is generic enough to suit a range of different types of Christmas class parties. Certain black line masters can also be taken out if you wish not to include an element in your party.
There are links to American, English and Australian curriculum documents.
