This Halloween project based product combines science, language arts, math, engineering, and art. It could easily fit into any STEAM initiative.
There are three projects, one which has 3 different skill levels.
A completed sample of the project is provided for the students to view, handle, and
study. Using this as the main point of reference, the students must put together the pieces and materials they are given to make a replica of the completed item.
The students are also presented with picture or written steps for project construction.However, these usually aren't in order and the student must arrange them sequentially or perform some other task with the steps.(such as matching written to picture steps, filling in missing steps,etc.)
The challenge activity poses questions about modifying or improving the construction of the project and encourages more critical thinking, especially in science.
This resource really gets the kids thinking, but doesn't intimidate.
These activities are designed for classroom centers. However, they can be delivered/implemented in whatever setting is convenient for you.
Besides initiating engaged learning, this resource gives you the advantage of
having plenty of completed Halloween projects to decorate your room with!
Included is a visual for a bulletin board which displays the 4-sided jackolanterns.
Just imagine how cool your classroom will look with all of those jackolanterns and ghosts "hanging around".
So, in a nutshell, here's what you get in this package
*4-Sided Pumpkin Spinner (broken down into 3 activities which are skill leveled)
*2-sided jackolantern hanger
