In this activity students will practice multiplying a fraction by a whole number to determine how many ornaments to place on the Christmas tree.
For this activity, I have modified my “Trim the Tree” worksheet (multiplying fractions by whole numbers) to be used with stations around the classroom. You can place multiple cards at each station, or just one. Use the “Work Space” table to draw pictures to represent and solve each problem. You may wish to encourage students to use simple shapes in their pictures instead of detailed ornaments. This will save time! The directions say that students can draw or glue the ornaments. If they are gluing they may cut from the “Decorations from the Attic” page. They could also use this page to help solve the problems.
