Students must use their math skills to eliminate suspects so they can find out who stole Santa’s sleigh! This is a great end-of-year Christmas math activity.

Four clues are given to the students and each clue (worksheet) allows them to eliminate 1-3 suspects.

Clue 1. Hidden multiplication message.

Clue 2. Magic to fly the sleigh.

Clue 3. Fractions – fuel in the suspect’s snowmobile.

Clue 4. Bribing the guard – adding money (including cents/decimals). 

This resource includes:

  • an extension writing activity for early finishers – What would you do if you had Santa’s sleigh for a day?
  • answer sheets
  • a print version and a Google Classroom set.
    • With the Google Classroom version students can fill in editable textboxes and move images to complete the activity online!
  • An engaging video hook!

Note: This activity reads the same as my two other versions (easier and advanced) of the CSI Christmas Maths Activity, with just the maths in the clues being different. The clues from this edition can be interchanged with the easier or advanced versions to suit your students. 

Maths Level: Year 4-6

Maths Topics: Multiplication, simple pre-algebra, shading fractions, adding money (decimals)
