Problem solving is an essential skill, at every grade level, and should be practiced throughout the school year, not as an isolated unit. With this in mind, I created this set of 10 word problems in a Halloween theme. Each of the problems is based on facts or real-world Halloween scenarios, and requires students to do multiple steps to solve the problem. Not only will your students be practicing their Math skills, but they will also be learning cool trivia about Halloween!
These task cards would be ideal for small group centres, where students can collaborate to answer the questions.
• Calculating Percent, Percent of a number, Discounts
• Decimal Operations
• Whole number operations
• Reading Graphs
• Area (rectangles & L-shapes)

Simply print, cut and laminate for year after year use.
