A few months back, I posted a FALL in Love with Math Scavenger Hunt. My kiddos had soooo much fun with that activity that I decided to make a Halloween version as well. It’s so hard to believe that trick or treating is barely over a week away! This week we will be doing this Halloween FUN Math Scavenger Hunt!
Basically, this activity is a math problem solving scavenger hunt with a self-checking twist. Kids travel around the room looking for story problem cards and solve them on their recording sheet. They know that their answer is correct if they find another question card with that answer in the top corner! This works really well as a math center or enrichment activity. I used the fall version over the course of a week as kids finished their math “must do” work. You can also use this as a “question of the day” activity and model the work whole-group.
I love that it gets learners up and moving, and it gives great insight into students’ problem-solving skills. If you’d like to have your kiddos scavenger hunt too, click HERE!
