PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Integrate art into your math class by building a Halloween creature with geometric shapes. Show your students how simple shapes can create intricate characters and images. Celebrate Halloween while learning or reviewing the geometric properties or area and perimeter/circumference of different shapes!

Versatile! Great for different levels!
From opening up a discussion about the properties of two dimension shapes to extending the activity by discovering area and perimeter of the shapes, this Halloween activity is fun for all! Your students can make their creatures on plain paper, on the template and color them in, or they can cut out the pieces from construction paper. Various activities can be used for remediation or enrichment!

It’s ALIVE!
Students can rearrange the parts of the face to make the creature look how they want it to, as long as the dimensions of each part is correct. Provide your students with construction paper, or graph paper, or plain paper, and all the math tools (rulers, compasses, colored pencils, scissors) to have them create their own monsters in their own way with the given parameters. The measurements are easy to check, and the creatures make great Halloween decorations to liven up the classroom!

Create Them All!
Give your students different monsters and to have them create a Halloween scene with the decorations they create. If you would like to use my characters in your own resources, you can get the clipart here!

Included are:

Create-A-Monster (Final Look)
This is how the Halloween creature should look when it’s done. Your students can change the look of the face to make their creatures unique! Use geometric vocabulary to describe how the creatures should look and strengthen math literacy in your classroom.

Shapes-Of-A-Monster
This activity is to start a dialogue using geometry math vocabulary to describe how intricate designs are created from simpler shapes.

Create-A-Monster Template
You can choose to have your students fill out the names of each shape on this template. Or you can use the template to have your students color, cut, and create the creature. You can extend this activity into an area and perimeter/circumference lesson. Use the grid to figure out the dimensions and the measurements of each shape.

Create-A-Monster (CLUES)
The dimensions of each piece should be the same for each student, but they’ll have fun creating their own faces by placing the pieces however they want! Be prepared for some interesting looking creatures!

Two levels of worksheets are provided for the Jack-O-Lantern. Check the shape next to the directions to find the coordinating answer sheets.

1 inch and ½ inch Grid Paper

The SHAPES answer key can be enlarged to poster size as a reference for your students on your bulletin board.
