Christmas by the yard is a really fun class project for your eager mathematicians.
Let's face it--this time of year, most kids have only Christmas on the brain.
Each student will need coloring devices (markers, crayons, colored pencil,ect), a ruler, and a strip of precut paper.
You can either read the directions aloud with your class or let each student have the directions and go at their own pace.
This lesson is a great lesson in listening, following directions, measuring and using artistic ability.
And it's a great way to incorporate the holiday season in the classrooom.
