Christmas Maths Sequences (Collect a Joke Worksheet Activity)

Christmas Maths Sequences Collect a Joke

This is a collect a joke activity which requires pupils to collect the words to collect the Chist-maths Joke “Why isn’t every man in a red suit with a beard Father Christmas? ?” and punchline "Because correlation doesn’t imply Claus-ality"
Pupils start where indicated, make a note of the word in the middle of the row (cross it out to keep track) and then work out the answer to the question below. They then find this answer on the top row and again make a note of the word underneath, thus forming the joke and punchline.
