Product Description

Halloween Math Mystery: the Case of The Tricking Treat - 2nd Grade Edition

NO PREP, print and go! Your student detectives must complete the math worksheets to unlock important clues that will help them narrow down a list of spooky suspects! The last suspect remaining on the list is the one who stole and used the tricking treats on the children!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preparation

- No Prep required! Print the student pages, staple or place

in a folder, and your students are set to go.

- Have the video hook ready for viewing at the start of the

lesson on an IWB, iPad or computer monitor screen.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Math Skills Required to Unlock Clues

There are five clues to crack to solve the mystery:

Clue 2: Subtraction (Within 20)

Clue 3: Time (O'Clock and Half-Past).

Clue 4: Ordering Numbers from smallest to largest (the numbers go up by 5's, up to 130)

Clue 5: Place Value of the Underlined Digits (Tens and Ones only)

Students must use critical thinking skills to figure out what the clue is telling them to eliminate from the list of suspects.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Multiple Uses

- Suitable for independent, pairs, or group work.

I recommend pacing this activity by giving students one clue at a time. Once the whole class has completed a clue, then move on to the next clue either within the same lesson or the next math session. New math content presented? Make a lesson out of it by modeling the math before diving into the clue. I like to say, "we must learn something new before attempting the next clue."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How long will this activity take?

Time to complete will vary anywhere between 30mins - 2 hours or more! It mainly depends on how familiar your students are with the math mystery format, as well as how difficult they find math skills covered in the particular mystery. Please check the math skills outlined in the clues above to help determine suitability for your class.
