Get no prep and differentiated Thanksgiving themed math lessons with these rigorous and engaging math activities. You will receive multiple versions of six math lessons that require no prep work other than making copies or printing, and they are fun for students!
In this product you'll find:
-Geometric Feast-Students have to set a Thanksgiving table using different shaped platters and serving dishes. This addresses almost all basic polygons mentioned in the Common Core Standards.
-Partitioning Pies-Students will partition six different pies into different numbers of pieces. To give students a little extra enrichment, I've added a Part 2 to the activity, and students will solve fraction word problems using the partitioned pies.
-Cost of Cooking-Students will use an information sheet of nine different food items to solve 12 problems that will require students to use multiple operations to solve one-step and two-step problems. I also included a decimal version for practice adding and subtracting decimals.
-Cook Off-Students will use Thanksgiving recipes to solve six elapsed time problems.
-Party Planning-Students are preparing for their family's Thanksgiving meal, and the preparation leads to five division problems that require students to think about how the remainder effects the problem.
