This Christmas math code breaker uses skills learnt in simplifying/reducing fractions to reveal a Christmas joke. Make your students feel like a spy trying to crack a code in a fun and novel way for students to practice simplifying/reducing fractions (numerators and denominators are in the 1-12 times tables). The sheet contains awesome Holiday clip art to help engage your learners at Christmas. Answers are included.
I have included 2 versions (the math is the same) - 1 with reducing fractions as a title and one with simplifying fractions as a title.
Students need to answer the questions and find each corresponding letters in order to reveal a Christmas joke. Great for bell ringers or to give to early finishers.
Suggestions for use:
Give to students to do by themselves
Give for homework
Use as a collaborative task - (pairs/3s work out a column each)
