Product Description

This Halloween STEM Relay is based upon mostly fourth and fifth grade common core standards, with a few more challenging problems included, but can be used to enrich younger grades, or challenge students who are struggling in older grades. I used this with my 6th graders and it was such a fun activity for them. (Check out the preview to see some of the problems!)

The task of this activity is that it is just before Halloween and Gwennie the Ghost needs help trying to find the haunted mansion. After students solve all of the task cards to find the haunted mansion, they will then be given the supplies to build their own haunted mansion. This activity will promote communication, cooperation, collaboration, and problem-solving skills.


  • Print one HELP page to read to the class at the beginning.
  • Print as many sets of task cards and answer recording sheets as the amount of groups you plan on having. I would plan for 3 to 4 students per group.
  • Print as many THANK YOU pages as you have groups.
  • Decide which supplies you are going to give you students and divide them up into equal groups.

Time Crunch Options:

  • Tooth Picks and Mini Marshmallows
  • Tooth Picks and Mini Pumpkin candies
  • Tooth Picks and Candy Corn

Unlimited Time Options

  • Notecards
  • Tape
  • Popsicle Sticks
  • Glue
  • String
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Paper Clips
  • Sticky Notes
  • Molding Clay

Set Up:

  • Create piles of supplies for each group
  • Each pile should include:
  • One set of task cards pre-cut
  • One set of answer recording sheets pre-cut (1-10 and blank lines)
  • One Thank You page
  • One bin of STEM supplies depending on time limit
  • Optional: Whiteboards or extra scratch paper for students to show their work and so all group members are working out problems

Read to class:

Today you are going to be split up into groups of 3-4 students. Each group is going to start with task card and recording sheet number one.

As a group, you are going to read task card number one and solve the problem on your recording sheet as fast as you can. Once you have solved the task, and shown your work on your recording sheet, one person is going to bring just the recording sheet to me to have it checked. If your answer if correct, you will get task card and recording sheet number two. Each time you will get to keep your task cards so that you can refer back to them if needed. If your answer is incorrect, you will be sent back to your group to rework your answer. If it very important that you show your work so that we know you’re not just guessing.

Once you have solved all ten task cards correctly, you will be given your supplies to build a haunted mansion. The goal is so build the biggest and strongest mansion possible.

If you’re ready, I will give each group task card number one and recording sheet number one. It’s very important that you keep it upside down until I get done reading the HELP page. As soon as I read the last line, you may flip your task card over and begin working.

Are you ready?
