Are you looking for some fun seasonal math activities to keep your students focused on learning math this November?
Crafty math teachers know how to channel their student's excitement into holiday-themed activities during this time of year. And since preparing materials is time-consuming (and you're already so busy this school year as it is), my gift to you this fall is 5 Days of Fall Math Challenges!
The following printable Fall Math Worksheets allow you to inject some seasonal mathematics into your lessons this month.
Each worksheet shares a challenge question (answers are included) appropriate for all elementary and middle school grade levels - they are perfect for warm-ups, exit tickets, and homework and extra credit assignments.
