"The Math Monster" is a quick and easy activity you can do with your fifth grade students as a review on Halloween. Students will be so engaged in trying to create their monster, they won't even realize they're doing math on a crazy day! You can have them draw their monsters, or use craft supplies such as construction paper, glue, scissors, etc. Either way, these will turn out great and might even be bulletin board worthy!

*Two options are available. One has a focus on powers of ten, one has a focus on multi-digit division.

*Review skills include...

-3-digit by 2-digit division

-decimal multiplied by 10 or a power of ten (up to 1,000)

-finding the missing power of ten in decimal and whole number multiplication

Find whole-number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10.
