Your Christmas Math Centers just got a lot more engaging! These fun logic problem puzzles are sure to challenge your students and get them thinking about addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division in a whole new way. These are ideal throughout December as early finisher tasks, morning tubs, or partner math centers.
For each of the 160 logic puzzles in this bundle, your students will find the value for each Christmas symbol and record it on the accompanying recording sheet.
Don't be fooled! If your students are not used to working with numbers in this way, these will be surprisingly challenging!
⭐️ There are many ways to use these Logic Problems throughout the month leading up to Christmas. Try them as:
- early finisher tasks
- morning math tubs
- an "around the room" gallery walk - post the cards around the room and have students circulate, answering them as they go
- math stations (let students work in partners, and listen to the amazing math conversation they will have as they use critical thinking and reasoning skills!)
If you are like most teachers and teach a class with a wide variety of ability levels, this multi-grade bundle is the perfect way to provide differentiation and ensure that each student works to their full potential. You want to provide just enough challenge for each student but not SO MUCH challenge that this activity becomes frustrating.
Either assign specific logic puzzles to students or lay out the various sets and have students choose the one that provides the perfect challenge for their brain! (This can be a great way to empower your students and teach responsibility for their own learning.)
