Have your students practice solving systems of equations using substitution with this fun, seasonal riddle worksheet activity! With traditional practice problems and word problems, this download has everything you need to reinforce this important skill!

This product is included in my Systems of Equations Seasonal Bundle, as well!

Students will solve the 14 worksheet questions using substitution. Once students complete the problems, they need to find the solution point on the coordinate plane and write in the letter that corresponds with the point at the bottom of the page to fill in the Christmas riddle. An additional worksheet with 3 Christmas-themed systems of equations word problems (to be solved using substitution) is included that also asks students to write their own linear system word problem.

The Christmas riddle makes this activity more fun than a traditional worksheet and the set-up of the solutions on the coordinate plane reinforces the idea that the solution to a linear system is simply a point. The word problems are great way to have students apply the skill of substitution to "real world" problems!

This download has a fun Christmas/ Winter/ Seasonal theme!
