Winter Math Project

This Winter Math Project will engage your students in a rigorous review of math standards, and they may not even notice!

As students embark on a winter vacation of a lifetime, they must track their expenses and other math-related tasks throughout their trip. They'll calculate how much elevation they gain while skiing, they'll plot a sledding path through multiple obstacles, they'll find the area and perimeter of their lodging (after they select which option is best for them). They'll figure out a schedule for tubing, make a map of the winter festival, and so much more.

This project is differentiated to meet the needs of students in grades 3-6. The main project is geared towards students in grades 5-6 while the differentiated version has been adapted to meet 3rd and 4th grade standards. I highly suggest picking and choosing which tasks will work best for your students! Please keep in mind that I design my math projects to be a rigorous and challenging way to engage students in learning and thinking about math!

What are teachers saying about this math project?

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My students adored this! It was a wonderful review of prior concepts as we returned from the holiday break. The students were extremely engaged. I loved how the slides were differentiated so I could easily accommodate for my class.” – Jennifer C.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “FUN RESOURCE!!! Used this over 5 days as a “vacation” each day with a different task. The more advanced students would complete 2 tasks per day and it worked out so well. I was able to easily differentiate for my students with disabilities too! – Dana G.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “My students were fully engaged and enjoyed the imagined vacation activities. They asked relevant real life questions as they worked through this assignment. The class really got into it!” – Andrea B.
