On the 2nd day of Christmaths...

… MyMaths gave to you…

a paper chain challenge!

Have you decorated your classroom yet? We have a great Friday activity for you that will help make your classroom feel extra festive.

Paper chains are a Christmas staple, but have you ever given them a mathematical twist? Download this paper chain worksheet and get your class thinking about the maths behind their decorations.

This activity is great for all ages, and provides particuarly good practice of circles. Don’t forget to revisit the resources in the Shape section on MyMaths if anyone needs some hints.

Questions a little tricky for your younger pupils? Not to worry - why not challenge them to make the longest chain in the class?

Tweet us your creations at @MyMathsUK. We’ve been having a go ourselves so look out for photos of our attempts and see if your class can do better.

See you again on Monday for the next gift!
