Do you need a fun activity for your class during the hectic weeks before Winter Break? The Christmas Challenge is perfect. Your class will compete in small groups to complete 10 academic challenges. After each challenge, the class will open a Challenge Ticket envelope and solve the code word. The first team to solve all 10 code words is the winning team.
What is the Christmas Challenge?
The Christmas Challenge is a fun, cooperative learning activity where students work together to complete 10 academic based challenges. Once a team completes the challenge, they open the corresponding Challenge Ticket envelope and solve the mystery word. You can decide if you would like for your class to complete all 10 challenges or only pick and choose some of the challenges.
Each Challenge activity, Challenge Ticket, and Code Word has coordinating pictures, so the project is easy to organize. After a group completes the challenge, they will receive the Challenge Ticket with the same picture. Inside the envelope, they will solve the mystery word with that same picture again.
I know that the weeks leading up to Winter Break are hectic, and activities that take a ton of time to prep are almost always impossible to squeeze into your plans. I love this challenge because the students can work together, it’s academic based, and easy to prepare. This low prep activity only involves printing and getting the envelopes ready for each team.
