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.
