This winter, there's no time to chill! A massive snowstorm has put your town's winter plans on ice. Mayor Evergreen needs your help to unbury the residents in your town. It's time to lace up your boots, bundle up, and prepare yourself for the Great Snow Rescue Competition!

The Great Snow Rescue Competition is a real-world math project that requires students to budget their money, strategize, and help Mayor Evergreen rescue the residents in town after a major snowstorm. Students will use addition, subtraction, and multiplication to choose winter gear, buy snow-clearing equipment, hire a crew, plan a route on their map, and more.

Students will complete the six steps of this resource to see how many houses they can unbury from the snow. Each step is a different activity that they must complete.
