Math Resources for Thanksgiving

Math Resources for Thanksgiving

I can't believe that Thanksgiving is coming up so fast!  Not only do I love the holiday season, but I love creating resources that go with holidays!  I have compiled all 8 of my math Thanksgiving resources below!

1.) Slope Thanksgiving Activity

Slope Thanksgiving Activity

This activity is my most popular Thanksgiving resource!  This is a great activity for students learning about slope. Students will plot given points on a graph, determine the slope between two points, color the resulting figures from the graph, and reflect upon what they learned from this activity.

2.) Unit Rates Thanksgiving Activity (Better Buy)

Unit Rates Thanksgiving Activity Better Buy

I love love LOVE this activity!  This activity is one of my favorites because it gives students some perspective of the real world.  Students will be determining the total cost of having a Thanksgiving dinner. Students will calculate the unit price of 8 Thanksgiving food items to determine the best buy. After students determine the best buy, they will calculate the total cost that they are spending on their Thanksgiving dinner. This is a perfect activity for any class learning about unit rates and is great individually or in groups of 2.

3.) Unit Rates Coloring Worksheet (Thanksgiving Edition)

Unit Rates Thanksgiving Coloring Activity Better Buy

This is my newest Thanksgiving resource.  My coloring worksheets have been pretty popular, and this is no exception!  Students will be calculating the better buy for eight Thanksgiving food items. They will use the unit price to color a mystery picture. Students will also calculate how much money they will be spending in total for their Thanksgiving dinner.
Your students will love working in small groups on this coloring worksheet. Students will need crayons, markers, or colored pencils.

Thanksgiving Slope Activity Task Cards

This is my second most popular Thanksgiving resource.  Students will be using the slope formula to determine what Henry ate for his Thanksgiving dinner. Included is 12 task cards that can be laminated and used for many years.

Multi-Step Equations Thanksgiving Activity

This is a fun Thanksgiving mystery activity where students will be determining which Thanksgiving plate is the "missing plate". Students will be solving 10 problems on multi-step equations. After solving the problems, students will be able to self assess themselves by bubbling in their answers. Students will look at the answers not bubbled in to determine the food items that were on my plate.

Two-Step Equations Hidden Message Worksheet Thanksgiving

I have created many hidden message worksheets, and was asked to create some for Thanksgiving.  Hence, this worksheet was created!  Students will be solving 16 problems on two-step equations. After solving the problems, students will bubble in circles to reveal the hidden message "GIVE THANKS". This is a great worksheet for practice!

Slope Given Two Points Hidden Message Worksheet Thanksgiving

This resource has the same hidden message as #6 but is on slope.  Students will be solving 16 problems on slope given two points. After solving the problems, students will bubble in circles to reveal the hidden message "GIVE THANKS". This is a great worksheet for practice!

Pythagorean Theorem Thanksgiving Activity

This is a great activity for any grade level learning the Pythagorean Theorem. Students will be using the Pythagorean Theorem to determine distances between two points on a coordinate plane.

That's all of my Thanksgiving activities.  Make sure to be on the lookout for a post about all of my Christmas activities!

Mitosis Puzzle Activity

I decided to complete my Mitosis puzzle activity with help from my husband :)

Conclusion: This was a great activity!  My husband even enjoyed the activity.  You can have students work individually or in pairs.  It is a great hands on activity.  After students finish gluing down the puzzle pieces, they will reflect upon their learning.

You can purchase this activity at my Teachers Pay Teachers account by CLICKING HERE.  In addition, if you do not have a Teachers Pay Teachers account, then you can purchase the activity from my store by CLICKING HERE.  Thanks for stopping by!

Mitosis and Meiosis Foldable

I am so excited to show you a mitosis and meiosis wheel foldable that I created for interactive notebooks!  The nice thing is that you don't necessary have to use them in interactive notebooks.  They can be used as handheld studying tools or placed in the notebooks.  The mitosis wheel has three different versions: (1) prometaphase is included, (2) prometaphase is not included, and (3) blank template.  The blank template allows you to have students write in information.  This is great for differentiation!  You can purchase the mitosis or meiosis separately or as a bundle.  I have included the link of the bundle but you can find the others in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

Two-Step Equations Hidden Message Activity / Worksheet

I have just finished a puzzle activity on two-step equations.  This is a fun activity that your students will love!

Students will be solving 20 problems on two-step equations.

After solving the problems, students will cut out the boxes and glue them onto the other page according to their solution.

This is a great activity that can be given individually or in groups of 2-4.

In addition, it is self-assessing in two ways: (1) students know that if they don't see their solution on the page then they need to check their answer and (2) after placing their boxes down, there is a hidden message. If they do not see the message, then they know that they made a mistake. This activity can take 1-2 days (1 day if you are on block schedule and 2 days if you are not on block schedule).
