A Christmas Maths Activity: Kids love making these pictures appear in colour as they solve the sums and trace over the line drawings.
Everyone can draw great Christmas pictures and practice lots of basic addition, subtraction and doubles sums at the same time as playing a game.
Preparation: Laminate (if you want to reuse these next year) and cut the 54 cards per small group. Copy a Christmas picture for each student. I have included a choice of two pictures. 1) Nativity Scene, 2) Christmas Symbols.
Turn the cards upside down. Students take turns to choose a card and trace over the line drawing within the square that holds that number. Use coloured markers or pencils.
When each student has traced over the line, the card may be placed in a pile next to the next student so that they can use the card. Keep rotating the cards around the circle until the picture is complete.
This can be done as a game, first to finish the picture, or as a quiet end of year activity and students complete the picture at their own pace.
This game gives students lots of practice and is enjoyable and relaxing as they discover their picture.
