This product includes everything you need for Halloween Themed Math Centers in your fifth grade classroom. Students will practice working with decimals and place value, a part of the major work for fifth grade. Students will also review key fraction concepts they learned in fourth grade to get them ready to build on that knowledge in fifth grade.
This product includes 7 colorful and fun Halloween themed math centers.
1.) Expanded Form Candy Corn - students practice writing numbers in expanded form, standard form and word form.
2.) Number Webs - students select a number and complete a variety of activities for that number (odd or even, multiply, write a problem, shade in a 100s block). For differentiation, there is also a number option and set of activities. Each activity mat is two pages. Students can return to this center several times! (Please note: due to the nature of this activity, there is no answer key for this center.)
3.) Trick or Treat - Students read and evaluate an equation. If the equation is true, it's a treat. If it's false, it's a trick! Equations are evaluated using order of operations. Several cards include parentheses; only one card includes an exponent.
4.) Decimal Word Problems - Halloween themed word problems focused adding, subtracting and multiplying (there are no division problems) with decimals to the hundredths place.
5.) Spooky Fractions and Decimals - this is a review task for fourth grade, as most fifth grade classes will not have covered fractions by October. Students will create equivalent fractions. Students will also write a decimal for a fraction with a power of ten denominator.
6.) Monster Mash Up - Students will evaluate an expression with a decimal (adding and subtracting only) and compare the values. The monster with the highest value wins!
7.) Candy Toss - Students explore place value with buckets representing 1, 10 and 100 points.
No additional supplies are needed, however, I like to keep each center in its own manilla envelope with the directions on the outside. I print and laminate 2 or 3 sets of cards so several students can visit the center on one day. Activities should be printed in color. Candy Toss has one card that MUST be printed in color in order for students to complete the activity.
