Winter Themed Activities

 

Winter may not be here yet but it sure is cold.  Grab one of these winter weathered themed activities. 

  

  • Solving Inequalities Santa Hat
    • This activity is similar to a walk around but is all digital. Students start at the Santa Hat labeled #1 and solve problems based on their previous answer. After solving the problems, they submit their answer order which the Google Form will self grade and a picture/document of their work.
  • Ordering Numbers Snowball Fight
    • This activity is completed on a Google Form. Students are presented with snowballs that are decimals, fractions, mixed numbers, in scientific notation or percents and must type them in order to advance. The only way to advance in the snowball fight is to get the answer correct. There are 5 questions.
  • Factoring Hot Chocolate Activity
    • This activity has students factor equations on hot chocolate mugs. The students select the marshmallows that represent the zeros. This is completed on a Google Form and will automatically grade for you. There are 15 questions for the students to factor and find the zeros. 
  • Factoring Drag and Drop Hot Chocolate
    • This is a Google Slides Activity on finding the zeros given a quadratic equation. The equations start equal to 0 and progress to harder problems where they must first get the equation in order and equal to 0. The students will drag and drop the marshmallows into the boxes above the mugs where they are answers. There are 10 total equations for students to factor and find the zeros; an answer key is included.

Pixel Art with Math Problems

    A pixel art activity provides instant feedback and some excitement.  My students enjoy doing these because they can see right away if they are doing the work correct and they also like to race to figure out the picture first.    Integer Operations Add/Subtract Pixel Art This is an online activity where students complete addition and subtraction of integers. The students will input their answer in the table and a color will appear if they are correct. When the students are finished they will have a picture.   Distribute Equations Pixel Art This in an online activity that has students solve equations with the distributive property. Several of the equations also require knowledge of combining like terms after distributing. Students solve the problem and type the answer in the table, if they are correct a color will appear. When the table is filled they will have a picture. One Step Equations Pixel Art This activity is done online in Google Sheets. The students solve each equatio

Pixel Art Activities

    If you are looking for students to practice multiple concepts at once with instant feedback these 2 activities would be great. The first activity hast students write the equation of a line given 2 points.  They start by finding the slope, then the y-intercept, and finally writing the equation.  Each piece along the way will color the picture if they are correct.  I like this instant feedback because my student tend to get frustrated if they do all the work and then when I check it we realize their slope was wrong so they have to start at the beginning again. The second activity is on percent, decimals, and fractions.  This activity requires students to convert between the 3 along with making the fractions mixed numbers.  This is great for middle school classes to practice.  My students tend to struggle with which way to move the decimal so this instant feedback helps them check their answers as they go.   Writing Equations of a Line - Baby Yoda Pixel Art Percent, Decimal, Fraction
