This unit is has three games/activities centered on shoveling snow and building snowmen. In the first two activities students use basic addition and subtraction 0-20 to match snow shovels with snowflakes. The third activity is more open ended and uses 3 addends to find the correct sum. Students choose a snowman card with a number from 0-20 on his hat and then find 3 buttons that can add up to the correct sum.
