This download is an awesome way for students to practice locating points on the first quadrant of the coordinate grid. Students will look at a grid with snowflake letters. Students will then use coordinates to decode the secret message, which is the answer to a riddle or joke. Students will be engaged and will enjoy this winter activity!

The download comes with coordinate grid snowflake letters, 5 riddles/jokes and 1 open ended question asking students to create their own secret message using the snowflake letters, and an answer key. This is wonderful for review, inside recess, test prep, sub work or for fun!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., 𝘹-axis and 𝘹-coordinate, 𝘺-axis and 𝘺-coordinate).
Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.
