Fun Halloween activity for intermediate elementary and middle school students. Students create "jack"-o-lanterns that reflect some of their Halloween preferences (trick-or-treat vs party vs stay home, for example). Each pumpkin is named for its creator - mine would be "Mary-o-lantern" for example.
It has more detail than most primary grade jack-o-lantern creations, and requires more reading ability. Students will need to know the terms trapezoid, rhombus, and triangle as these shapes are used for some of the face pieces. This glyph activity has been used with middle school students who had a great time creating their personalized pumpkins.
The “Name”-o-lanterns make a cute seasonal decoration. Display them on a bulletin board, on lockers, or on the wall in the hallway. A brief explanation is included for posting with the student work.
