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!
