Open-ended Math projects are fun, cooperative activities that encourage critical thinking and expose students to real-life problem solving.
In Santa's Sleigh Weigh-In students help to fill two sacks of toys for Santa's sleigh. Sacks cannot weigh more than 50 kg (metric) or 100 pounds (imperial) so students must pick their toys carefully.
Concepts covered: addition, subtraction, multiplication and weight conversion
