I hope this engaging, hands-on Halloween math craftivity & practice page set brings you & your students as much fun & learning as it did mine! For each “frightful” character, students will complete a factor activity page where they create a 2-digit {or higher} number by rolling dice, turning over playing cards, or using a number spinner. After the activity page is completed, students choose the problem with the MOST FACTOR PAIRS to illustrate via the coordinating craftivity provided. For finding & comparing LEAST common factor & GREATEST common factor, students play a simple game to accompany their activity page & craftivity. FUN!

For each craftivity, you & your students have multiple choices for how to complete the character craft. For BEST results, follow the instructions for creating TRACERS from the master copies & making the character out of construction paper. This looks most vibrant, & crayons work best on the construction paper, rather than on top of other crayon layers. However...let’s be real...often we don’t have time to do such an involved craftivity during math. When that’s the case, simply duplicate the master copy & allow students to color & cut out for the craft.

While this product was created for my 4th grade classroom & meets Common Core Standard CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.OA.B.4, it incorporates skills for basic multiplication facts in 3rd grade & can include products larger than 2-digits to make finding factors more applicable for older students (5th grade & older).
