Multiply single-digit numbers to help solve Thanksgiving problems with Math Mazes!
Thanksgiving Worksheets for Multiplication Fun!
With this Thanksgiving math worksheet bundle, students will work their way through three different Thanksgiving mazes. To find their way through each maze, students will need to multiply the two single-digit numbers given. Students can use the following multiplication strategies to work the problems:
- Repeated Addition
- Equal Groups
- Array Models
Students will multiply the numbers within a rectangle and follow the path with the correct answer. Students can shade the path with colored pencils, crayons, etc. But watch out! Some dead ends are waiting for your students in some of the mazes.
If you are looking to incorporate a little competitive Thanksgiving fun into your classroom, consider assigning this resource to a pair of students. When someone says, “Go!” students can race each other through the maze and check their answers at the end with the provided answer key.
Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:
- Guided math groups
- Lesson warm-up
- Lesson wrap-up
- Fast finishers
- Homework assignment
- Whole-class review (via smartboard)
Extend this Thanksgiving math activity by having students create their own multiplication maze with at least 12 problems to solve. Students can trade mazes with a classmate as well.
If there are students who need a bit of support, encourage them to reference previous assignments, posters, or anchor charts as a means of reference. Additionally, this worksheet can be completed in a 1-on-1 setting or with a small group of students.
