I use these task cards in my 5th grade class as a way to put an academic spin our Halloween party. I print the directions and task cards onto card stock and set up each center on different table groups. I allow students to move about the room freely. As students complete the tasks, I offer fun prizes in return for a completed task card. I randomly draw completed Pumpkin Towers task cards to give away the mini pumpkins at the end of the day.
Four different tasks:
- Mad Marshmallows - Air pressure with marshmallows
- Pumpkin Towers - Designing and building a tower to hold up a mini pumpkin
- Blobby Bears - Osmosis with gummy bears
- Crazy Corn - Dissolving with candy corn
I hope you find it useful for your teaching as well!
