# Winter Math Worksheets

What is the Winter Season? Ahh, winters! Doesn't just the name make you feel cold already? Let's see what winter actually is and how it begins! One of the four seasons that change around the year, winters are the coldest time of the year. Winters mark their arrival after spring and before autumn. Winter starts after the winter solstice when the Sun reaches its highest position in the sky. Since the Earth is divided into two hemispheres, the arrival of winter in both the hemispheres is different. In the Northern hemisphere, the winter starts by December 21 or December 22 while in the Southern hemisphere, the winter usually starts by June 21 or June 22. In various parts of the world, winter brings cold and icy winds. Most parts of the world also experience snowfall. Children make snowmen; people take vacations and enjoy skiing. During this season, many animals also hibernate, while the deciduous trees have no leaves. Heat up your chilly winter classroom with these, sure to be fun, worksheets.

### Winter Math Activities for Your Class

This is one of the toughest seasons to get students in engaged in class activities. The limited sunshine is surely a major culprit but being stuck indoors for the majority of the day is difficult to handle for both students and teachers. There are so many fun things that teachers can do to jazz up their curriculum by adding a seasonal theme to their everyday work. We asked all of the teachers on our staff to share their best project and activity ideas. Here is a collection of things that you may want to give a try:

**Geometry** - There a wide array of different activities that you can do with geometric shapes. A crowd favorite is the construction of snowflakes. They are composed of a mix of triangles, rhombuses, trapezoids, and hexagons. Take a quick search and find a template for snowflake origami. Make them with your students and then have students label all of the shapes that they can find. I would suggest making 5 different templates and repeating this activity multiple times. For advanced students we suggest building ski slopes and determining the measures of all the sides and angles.

**Measurement** - A snowman is just 3 spheres that are different sizes stacked on top of one another. I a two-dimensional view you can have students easily measure them and determine the length of the sphere (circle in two-D view). Each circle should increase in diameter as you go towards the top. You can also go back to our snowflake project and measure the sides of the geometric shapes that we have created.

**Patterns** - This is a great time to give students images that they can cut out and have them arrange the winter themed (snowman, mittens, trees, snowflakes, etc.) into their own pattern. Pass that pattern to a classmate and have them see if they can explain the arrangement in mathematical terms. You can also give students a mathematical pattern (1-2-1-3) and have them replicate this with their images.
