Channel your inner Potion Master and keep students engaged in learning around Halloween with this magical math potion-making activity.

Students will create a potion and *magically* conceal the potion recipe amounts using order of operations.

Groups will swap recipes and solve the math to successfully create another group's potion.

This download includes the following:

  • Student workbooks (disguised as Advanced Potions textbooks) These workbooks walk students through potion making in three parts.
    • Part One: Brainstorming a potion name, purpose, and explanation.
    • Part Two: Selecting potion ingredients and disguising the ingredient amounts with order of operations.
    • Part Three: Making another group's potion by solving their math problems to determine the correct ingredient amounts.

  • Shopping list of optional materials to make this lesson engaging.
  • Labels for potion ingredients (editable).
  • Editable student workbook pages.

Editable: This download is editable with PowerPoint. Simply add a text box and insert your own content. If you want to match the fonts, I used Blackadder ITC (available for free with any updated version of Word) and HelloAnnie.
