Students roll a dice to see which decoration they get to add to their tree. Their tree can end up with 7 ornaments, 3 candy canes, 5 stars, 6 presents 4 strings of lights and some garland. I tell my students to stop when they like how their tree is decorated. After they are done, they count and record their tree decorations on the graph. They then share with a friend how many of each decoration that they have. I also have them compare the decorations. For example, they might say, "My tree has more presents than candy canes." or 'My tree has 7 presents and 4 ornaments. Seven is more than four." I also have them compare their finished tree with a friend's tree. They might say, "I have more ornaments than you because 5 is more than 2." This is a great activity for the holidays!!
