Festive PowerPoint Presentation

57 Thanksgiving Math Mayhem

Great Math Fun for Thanksgiving.

Date: November 25, 2010 in the USA. Whilst this presentation may be primarily of interest to teachers in from the States, it will still be a great one to use in UK (perhaps as 5 blocks of 12 mental starters) and other classrooms. It contains good cross-curricula elements as well as being great fun. Slide 2 briefly introduces the Thanksgiving holiday by looking at some geography, family customs, and a little history with a reference to the pilgrims that settled in Massachusetts.

Thanksgiving Math Presentation Part 1: THE FAMILY MEAL
Answer the questions, click on the hyper-link buttons and watch the answers bounce around the family table. We have 12 questions, 12 different colored buttons, and 12 correspondingly colored answer squares, each with their own distinctive sound as they appear around the table.

Thanksgiving Math Presentation Part 2: THE PILGRIM AND THE TURKEY
You put the pilgrim off his meal with a number shower and scatter color and sound liberally around his head. A similar structure to that above.

Thanksgiving Math Presentation Part 3: THE HAPPY CHEF.
The Happy chef is carrying a large, freshly cooked pumpkin and tries to avoid the manic number situation that envelops him as he makes a dash for the table.

Thanksgiving Math Presentation Part 4: THE COOKED TURKEY.
This freshly cooked turkey looks very tasty sitting on its plate waiting to be carved. A dash of number seasoning will make it even tastier.

Thanksgiving Math Presentation Part 5: THE WILD TURKEY.
This turkey is on the run from a man with a gun and the numbers seem to be hindering its progress.

The presentation has 69 slides with 12 different questions for each part, 12 different colored (interactive) buttons and 12 different sounds effects. Slide 2 is an introduction to the Thanksgiving holiday for teachers and students outside North America. The last two slides are printable worksheets and contain all 60 questions. A good cross-section of questions is given (not too easy, not too hard.) Every thing is relatively straight forward to edit and so should be appropriate for elementary, middle and high school math classes. You should see this presentation as a template which you can adapt to suit each of your classes. You should therefore view it as 5 or 6 presentations for the price of one. Either, teachers or students can display the answers by clicking on the hyper-link buttons.
