It’s starting to get a little colder and winter is almost here! Looking for a great activity to do with your students while they’re stuck indoors? This targeting Number game using December Calendar Days is perfect for indoor activities and winter themed activities!
It will keep your students moving and energized as they roll the dice – they’ll even forget they’re learning while having fun!
Create a set of math mats using target numbers 1-31. Place an individual December Calendar Day number on a piece of Holidays Dots Computer Paper. Laminate to make it a write-on/wipe-off surface. Provide students with multiple dice, a mat and wipe-off marker. We used the Learning Resources Jumbo Dice in Dice here.
Challenge them to roll the dice and create equations to equal their target number on their sheet. This activity provides an excellent opportunity for differentiation, as student equations can be as simple or complicated as they are able to create.
