This sensational Halloween package contains:
1. Spot bats, toadstools, and treats.
Fun activities where the children are asked to make up their own math problems. Children often enjoy creating their own problems. This approach requires a deeper reflection upon numbers and basic arithmetic operations as compared to only providing an answer.
Halloween-inspired multiplication and division cards. Students can make their own problems. Color and black and white versions.
2. Design inspired by Nature - Invent a toy inspired by jumping spiders.
Enter the fascinating world of spooky animals and tasty vegetables - from spiders, bats and cats to owls, aye-aye with a witch-like long bony middle finger and pumpkins. Use the observations to design toys and solve problems.
Lessons about biomimicry require a brave approach to teaching since there is a move away from an approach where teachers are asking questions and looking for quick answers. Instead, young learners are given an opportunity to shape and explore their own ideas. Biomimicry and bioinspiration are constantly evolving and new ideas are explored to solve problems and design innovations.
3. 16 writing prompts with a Halloween theme.
