This cute activity will have your students practicing subtraction of 3 digit numbers, including regrouping across a zero, and creating an adorable Christmas tree craft at the same time. Students will choose an answer to class building questions such as "Do you prefer your hot chocolate with or without marshmallows?" and then solve a subtraction equation. The answer to the subtraction equation will provide students with directions for adding certain types and numbers of decorations to their Christmas tree.
