PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

CSI and Math Story Seasonal Bundle - Halloween, Back to School, Christmas, Easter, and Chinese New Year.

Your students will LOVE doing these. Great for upper elementary (primary) school students and lower middle school also.

A detailed description of each product in this bundle is below:

Halloween: This activity has a short story at the start which sets up your class for an adventure where they have to find out which of the creatures is the skeleton bride’s forgotten fiancé. They have to use their math skills to help break the witch's curse on the skeleton bride.

Four math clues which your students will need to solve in order to uncover who the skeleton bride’s fiancé is. The clues are:
Hidden Message: Students use their basic facts, mainly multiplication, in order
to uncover a hidden message left by the witch.
Basic cardinal directions and long addition: Students map the witch’s flight
path.
Decimal addition – Students figure the weight of the ingredients in magic vials.
Fractions – Students work out how much pizza each creature ate.

After the students have found out which creature is the skeleton bride’s fiancé they can complete the last activity to find out which room is the witch’s spell room. To make this activity shorter you don’t have to include this sheet.
