What educators are saying

This is fantastic resources that I hoped I would be able to use in the virtual academy that I teach in. I enjoyed using this.
I loved this resource to use with my students the Friday before Halloween. They loved the comic book drawing page!


This product is everything the busy classroom has been looking for! It is perfect for your class during Halloween week, but doesn't explicitly mention the holiday. You'll receive a FULL day of lesson plans based on Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds (a lesson for reading, writing, math, science, AND Social Studies!)

How does this work?

Your download will come with 3 files: student activity sheets, teacher lesson plans, and PDF with Google Slide™ links. Simply print, gather your materials, and GO! No need to look for extra activities, or write out your lesson plans.

Update November 2020: This product can now be used digitally with Google Slides! You must have a Google Classroom account to use this feature. You will download a PDF with links and directions for assigning this to your class. All activities remain the same (see below).

Lessons Included:

Reading: 5 activity sheets that focus on comprehension, sequence/summary, cause/effect, retelling, and point of view. The comprehension questions can be used as an informal or formal assessment if you wish! You can preview the comprehension questions as a FREEBIE at this link!

Math: 6 themed stations with math tasks (in the 3-5th grade range). You may choose to use a few or all of these sheets based on the needs of your class. Skills include addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, measurement, time, and word problems.

Writing: Write a spooky story in the style of a graphic novel/comic strip.

Science: Work through the scientific method as you complete a fun carrot experiment.

Social Studies: Explore ideas of citizenship and community building in your classroom.

Answer Keys are also included!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes, e.g., by representing the problem on a number line diagram.
Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.
Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36),...
Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.
Convert among different-sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system (e.g., convert 5 cm to 0.05 m), and use these conversions in solving multi-step, real world problems.
