Product Description

Halloween Math Mystery Activity - 4th Grade Edition.

The Case of the Jumpy Jack-O-Lanterns.

NO PREP, print and go! Useful for spooky and fun spiral math review!

Students must use their math skills to unlock clues. Then, use their powers of deduction to narrow down the list of suspects to find the culprit and the cure!

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 view the video. Separate video link to come soon.

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

Preparation

- No Prep required! 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.

- Editable Suspects list included: This enables you to change the character and cure names to alter the final mystery outcome. Two alternative pre-made lists also included for a quick swap out.

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

Math Skills Required to Unlock Clues

There are five clues to crack to solve the mystery:

Clue 1: Value of the underlined digit (up to ten thousands place value)

Clue 2: Growing patterns (find the rule and continue the sequence)

Clue 3: Word problems (addition, subtraction, multiplication)

Clue 4: Division (Facts 1-12, and a few ending in zeroes divided by a single digit)

Clue 5: Addition & Subtraction with large numbers (regrouping required)

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.
