Product Description

Halloween math craft, game, and activity. Here's a fun halloween math craft game kids can make themselves. The object of the game is to swing the Halloween "candy" into the monster's mouth. The halloween math "Munch Monster" takes about 45 minutes to build if you have the kids add hair, arms, horns and spots to their monsters. If you're pressed for time, the game works fine and looks good even without the extra parts.

In addition to the fun craft, there's a Halloween math activity involving addition, equivalent fractions, converting fractions to decimals, ratios, percents, mean, unit rate, and measurement and data, all on one worksheet!

To make it easy to explain the craft and assignment to the class, I made a PowerPoint with detailed instructions. It's editable!

Materials Required for this Halloween math Game

Cardstock (2 sheets per 4 students)

Craft sticks (1 per student)

String (12” per student)

Beads or beans (1 per student)

Munch Monsters Printables

Munch Monsters Instructions

Cardstock (67 lb minimum, heavier is better)

Craft Sticks (I used 7/8" wide sticks.)

String (12" for each student)

Crayons or colored Pencils (marker is not recommended because it will soften the cardstock)

Glue

Scissors

What's Included

Munch Monster Printable (4 monsters to choose from)

Munch Monster Parts Printables (hair, arms, horns, and spots in 4 different colors.)

Data Tracker for the math activity

A PowerPoint with instructions for the class and suggested follow up assignments in math and engineering.

I made the instructions editable so you can make changes based on the particular materials you might be using in class (beads vs. beans, for example.)

How I use it...

I like to have students build the munch monster craft game in the afternoon. Then we do the math game activity the next day. In a period or block schedule, I would have the kids do the craft on a Friday when their concentration is not so good, then we do the math activity on Monday.
