Everybody has heard of the 12 days of Christmas, but have you ever stopped to think about how much all those gifts would actually cost?
This activity will have your students figure that out. There are 2 choices. You can let your students know which one to do.
1. Figure out how much all the items will cost for the 12th day only. OR 2. Figure out how much ALL the items will cost for the whole 12 days. That means calculating day 1, day 2, day 3, all the way to day 12 and putting them altogether.
The song lyrics for the 12 Days of Christmas is included as well as a price list students will use for the activity. Additionally there are two worksheets for students to use to organize their work.
This is a fun and engaging math activity that involves problem solving, multiplication, addition, and will certainly make students think. You could do this whole group, small group, or have it be a math center. Enjoy!
