Santa’s Sleigh

Share:

Santa’s Sleigh math game is a game in which children calculate the number of presents that Santa will deliver in each house on his route. They start by counting how many children are in each house, and then multiplying that number by the number of presents that Santa is supposed to leave. This gives them the total number of presents for that house.

For example, if there are 4 children in a house and Santa is supposed to leave 8 presents, then the total number of presents for that house is 32. If there are 7 children in a house and Santa is only supposed to leave 3 presents, then the total number of present for that house is 21.

The elves are having a hard time with Santa’s sleigh. He was just about to take off when he noticed something wrong-the reindeer aren’t holding on tight enough and one of them fell down unconscious! It looks like you’re mankind’s only hope for salvation: can we count on your help?
