Do you read “Room on the Broom” by Julia Donaldson? It’s one of my students’ favorite Halloween stories.
It occurred to me, while thinking about the many animals that are being added to the broom, that I could really make this lesson come alive, by having students figure out how many of THEM could fit on a broom.
I had an absolute blast creating these quick, easy & fun activities, all of which have to do with measurement, and are easy-peasy “print & go”.
I know that your students will truly enjoy these hands-on “experiments” using a real broom.
The activities can be done as a whole group with younger kiddos, or in groups of 3-5 students.
Decide what format is best for your class, and pick the various "Room on a Broom" “challenges” accordingly.
If you’re looking for an educational & engaging activity for your Halloween party day, I think you’ll find this to be an absolute winner.
There’s plenty of options, so you can easily diversify your lessons.
Activities will help practice cooperation, estimation, measurement, addition, “thinking outside the box”, graphing, brainstorming, data collection, observation & analysis.
Students can also compare & contrast whether using a pool noodle, provides more room on a broom than a regular broomstick.
There’s also a bonus challenge (“The teacher wants to ‘drive’ the broom...") to extend the math lesson if time permits, or simply add this activity to another day.
“Something to Think About….” is another extension activity: here a new student has just arrived along with the dragon! You must fit them on your already full broom! How can you do that?
A “Save the Day!” activity, gives students yet another option to try out for “making room on their classroom broom.” In the end, will they have enough room to save the principal from the dragon as well?
Taking pictures as your children do the various activities, combined with the “challenge worksheets”, makes for a great bulletin board or hallway display.
I’ve included several posters to add some extra pizzazz.
Be sure and check the PREVIEW to see what's included.
After your measurement activities, you could watch the Netflix “Room on the Broom” video, which takes just 24 minutes.
Woo Hoo; some quiet time at the end of a fun-filled day.
