Product Description

Halloween Math Mystery Game - 3rd Grade Math Worksheets Activity Pack

The Case of the Halloween Heist

EASY PREP worksheets, print and go! Useful for a fun way to practice and review math skills during the spooky season.

Students must use their math skills to unlock clues. Then, use their powers of deduction to narrow down the suspects to find who is the Halloween Heist thief!

Suggestion: Pace the clues one by one to keep the class at the same point. If using the clues in a different order, keep the suspect list away from students until all five clues are completed and discovered.

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

Optional VIDEO HOOK available to use to introduce students to this math mystery activity. Check out the preview section to preview the video. There is a written story article that can be used instead of the video if required.

>>NEW<< - Optional ENDING Video Clip: I've listened to feedback about the want for an ending video. For the first time with a paper math mystery, I'm starting to include a short video that you can use at the end of the mystery to wrap up the activity.

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

Preparation

- 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 1: Multiplying by 2s, 5s, and 10s (1-10 only)

Clue 2: Place Value Models (Hundreds, Tens and Ones only)

Clue 3: Read & Write Time (O'Clock, Half-Past, Quarter-Past, Quarter-To only)

Clue 4: Adding Double-Digit Numbers (Regrouping Required)

Clue 5: Rounding Numbers to the nearest ten or hundred.

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

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

Multiple Uses

- Suitable for independent, pairs, or group work.

- Use as part of your math centers, add to your sub tubs, make it part of your early finisher tasks, give for homework, or make it part of your classroom practice/review sessions.

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.

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

MORE versions of this math mystery title are in the making and will be available soon.

Currently available in a DIGITAL Game version with three math levels in one!
