The fall can be such a fun time in the classroom. Instead of trying to fight the excitement around Halloween, lean into it with a fun math craft! There are so many different ways to represent the same exact value! Challenge students to see the flexibility in ways we can name a value with a *creepy* Halloween craftivity.

#### Halloween Place Value Math Craftivity

Step 1:
Ask your students to think of a 2 or 3 digit number.

Step 2:
Either assign a variety of representations to your students or brainstorm as a class about the different ways that you could represent a number. Allow your students to use hands-on manipulatives as they create their representations. Include ideas such as:

• Standard Form
• Unit Form
• Word Form
• Expanded Form
• Place Value Drawings
• Addition Equations (Could you write an equation that results in your number?)
• Subtraction Equations (Could you write a subtraction equation that results in your number?)
• Represent as money
• Etc!
Step 3:
Choose a fun Halloween shape to display your numbers. Think about ideas like:
• A haunted house with the number in the roof and a different representation in each window.
• A spider with representations on the legs.
• A ghost with the number and representations on gravestones in a graveyard.
• A skeleton with representations written on the bones.
Voila! A math lesson and a fun Halloween craft all in one!

If you are looking for a pre-made template to use for these crafts I have both a skeleton and spider option available in my TPT store!
