"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
