Product Description
Do you need a fun way for your students to practice the skill of finding the Greatest Common Factor or Least Common Multiple of two or more numbers? Send your students on the Jack-O-Lantern Jaunt, a Halloween-inspired math activity or learning center perfect for the month of October.

Two different sets of recording sheets and game cards included on this file. I prefer to use the first set as an introductory, whole-class activity, and then use the second set as a learning center for the remainder of the season or month.

There are two methods of play; solely dependent upon the amount of time you have available in preparation of this fun activity. One method involves game cards, where one side of a paper card has a pair of numbers, and the other side will have the correct answer (either the GCF or LCM). Students play by solving the problems that are face-up on a card, record their answers on a recording sheet, self-check the answer on the back, and if he or she is correct, they get to spin a paper-clip spinner and move along the trail of jack-o-lanterns.

The second method of play eliminates the use of the game cards, thus reducing the overall preparation time. Students use a single die to determine problems to solve on their recording sheets, independently self-check the answer with the corresponding answer key, and if he or she is correct, they get to spin a paper-clip spinner and move along the trail of jack-o-lanterns.

This file contains:

●suggested procedures and management for both methods of play (whole-class and learning center)

●2 Jack-O-Lantern Jaunt game boards… they differ only in background colors.

●2 Greatest Common Factor recording sheets with corresponding answer keys for the students to record their answers to the various questions they will solve during the game (and for teachers to have answer documentation)

●2 Least Common Multiple recording sheets with corresponding answer keys for the students to record their answers to the various questions they will solve during the game (and for teachers to have answer documentation)

●2 paper-clip spinners

●2 sets of 16 Greatest Common Factor question cards and 16 multiplication answer cards

●2 sets of 16 Least Common Multiple question cards and 16 division answer cards

●1 set of blank recording sheets and answer keys

●1 set of 32 blank question cards and 32 blank answer cards

Your students are certain to have a fun time playing this game, all the while sharpening their ability to find the Greatest Common Factor or Least Common Multiple of two or more numbers.

Enjoy!
