HALLLOWEEN and MATH
trick or treat?
DO your students need practice converting units?
This skill is important in science as well as math and no matter how old or how young your students are, they can be cbenefit from practicing unit conversions.
Math FIBs (which stands for Fill In the BlankS) provide a fun activity to reinforce or practice this skill. In this activity, students will practice converting units. Most problems involve one step converting, but there are some multi-step conversions included.
Each correct answer is aligned with a word or phrase that will be used to complete a Fill In the Blank worksheet with interesting trivia about Halloween.
This activity provides a more engaging approach to multiple choice. It will also increase interest about the holiday. Add some candy corn or perhaps, chicken feed (see #13) and you have a party!
This set could also be used for a great interactive bulletin board for October. Just print the ‘posters’ in color and scatter them on the board with tear off copies of the worksheet. You could even do one each day in the weeks leading up to Halloween. There are many ways you could use this activity.
