PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a fun, Christmas themed PowerPoint activity. Once purchased you will have a zipped file. Inside the zipped file are 3 items. 2 of the items are the actual game - it is available as a PowerPoint show using the newer versions of PowerPoint, or as a show using the 97-2003 version of PowerPoint. The other item included is a info and answers pdf document.

In the game PowerPoint show there are 15 ornaments on a main screen. Each ornament links to a 2-step equation students must solve. If using a smart board you can have students take turns touching the ornaments to reveal the question, or even have students throw a soft koosh ball at the board. Each problem slide has the question, as well as gift box in the top right corner. When a user clicks on the gift box, it will move over to reveal the answer to the problem. (This makes it easy to check students answers!) I have also included a sheet that has each answer for the teacher to print out and look at.

To play this game I suggest dividing students into 3-5 small groups. Then, give each group a white board (or other device) to record answers on. Allow someone from each group to go to the front of the room, to touch/throw a koosh ball at the ornaments. Then, give each group time to solve the equation. If you prefer to have students solve the problems on their own piece of paper there is a recording sheet available to print out.

Note: Due to copyright requirements of the clip art I used to create this show, an editable version of this game is not available. I apologize for any inconvenience! I may be able to accommodate special requests as far as problem types included - if you have questions please email me!

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, etc, please email me at: 4theLoveofMath2@gmail.com

Thank you!
