If you're looking for a week's worth of engaging activities leading up to Halloween, then you're in the right place!
A differentiated reading passage, vocabulary pocket chart cards, a vocabulary flippable; as well as main idea/supporting details printable, and text evidence question set are included.
Review adjectives and onomatopoeia with two printables that will be used to write a narrative about an adventure in a haunted house. A writing graphic organizer, writing paper, and rubric are included.
Review concepts such as rounding, addition and subtraction with regrouping, basic arrays, and graphs with 16 QR code task cards.
Also, focus on related multiplication and division facts with a color by product or quotient pumpkin printable.
Your students will love the Halloween themed story problem game. 26 word problems related to measurement, elapsed time, addition and subtraction with regrouping, and basic fractions are included.
Help your kids make predictions and record their observations with two different experiments.
"Disappearing Pumpkins" will have students predict what will happen when they dissolve candy pumpkins in four different liquids.
"Bouncing Eyeballs" lets students make their own bouncing (eye)balls. There is an extension activity that asks kids to test three different hypotheses.
There are two different projects centered around The Day of the Dead (which has many similarities to the holiday Samhain, a precursor to Halloween).
The first asks students to fill in missing details in a picture, and then decorate.
The second will allow students to make 3-D calaveras (skulls), and then have them decorate them in Dia de los Muertos style.
Literature resources and answer keys are included.
****Please refer to the Preview for Teacher Notes about how I use this resource; as well as supplies needed for the various projects.
****Note: The math sections of this resource are aimed toward third grade students so they will be a review for fourth graders and remedial for fifth graders. However, all of the other activities are well suited for this grade range.
I hope you and your students enjoy these fun and engaging Halloween activities!
