This a fun activity for students to practice multi-step word problems while shopping for a Halloween costume. Give each student a Halloween Costume Card and Halloween costume store paper. Each student will use their Store paper and Halloween Costume Card to determine what items they need and the total cost for all the parts of their costume. Students must also be able to determine how much change they will receive after they purchase their costume.
If your students have extra time, they could create a costume using random it ems from the store. They will also need to determine the total cost of the items and how much change they will receive. They can also draw their created Halloween costume.
This activity could be done in small groups, whole group, or as a center . The possibilities are endless! Be creative and have fun!
