The Great Snowman Challenge is a perfect way to engage students in solving multi step word problems. This is a rigorous crafitivity where students will work on the four basic operations; addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, within the 4th grade standards!

How to use: Divide your class into small groups and have them work through (or travel around the room) to solve the eight different multi step word problems. They will check their answers using the answer key that you will place in a central location in the room. Once they solve both parts of the problem correctly, they earn a piece to their snowman. After collecting all of their pieces, they put their snowman together! You can print the pieces on colored paper for quick assembly (as pictured), or print on white copy paper and allow your students to decorate on their own! Students record their work on provided recording sheets.

Digital & want to minimize paper? If you are a 1:1 school or have devices within your room, you can have your students solve the problems on whiteboards & explain on flipgrid, seesaw, etc.

Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
