Halloween / Fall Math Activity: Adding and Subtracting with Integers and Absolute Value -
This is also included in a DISCOUNTED bundle: Integers Activity Bundle
This activity is great practice with integer addition and subtraction. The expressions also include absolute values. It works best if you print the activity sheets for each student / group and then print the sets of pumpkin pieces on cardstock (preferably orange). You can laminate the pieces to re-use year-to-year to reduce cutting time or you can just print and have students cut out their own pieces the night before.
When each pumpkin is assembled correctly, it reveals a "check word" for easy grading.
Students will love doing this as a whole-class fall activity or as a learning station. Enjoy!
