This is a perfect way to engage your students in multiplication and division story problems/ problem solving. These also make a wonderful bulletin board during the month of December! Students will color their Christmas Train and then solve the story problems. They can write their multiplication or division fact in the window and there is plenty of room for a sentence as well!

This set includes:
-3 Different Christmas Train styles (2 pages each)
-Each Train style has 3 different versions (multiplication, division, and combination)
-3 Blank Train templates: to write in your own story problems (2 pages each)
-2 Background Templates for students to use to write in their answers
-Teaching and student directions

I can't tell you how much my class enjoyed making these! They were fun and engaging for my students to work on. They are a great math center, great for morning work, small group, and whole class! Students can cut them out and they make a beautiful bulletin board!

*Note: The Christmas train windows can be cut out with scissors if you fold them. I found it simple and quicker to stack similar trains together and use a craft knife to cut through multiple trains at the same time. I did this before I passed them out to students. This step made it so simple for them to get started!

a word from third

Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 × ? = 48, 5 = __ ÷ 3, 6 × 6 = ?.
Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56 ÷ 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56 ÷ 8.
Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 × 7.
