Halloween Math Mysteries - Engaging and Educational

Math Mysteries are such a fun way for kids to practice math standards in a 'story problem' type
format. The mysteries are set up in a 'choose your own adventure' type of theme.

There are a couple of different ways I've used math mysteries in my room.

  1. I print out a copy or two in color and put the pages in plastic page protectors and put them in a 3-ring binder. Then, the kids can use a dry erase marker to work out the problems.
  2. I print out the sheets that have 4 pages to a sheet and make individual booklets for each child.
  3. Finally, I printed the books in color and spiral bound them so I would have enough for 1/2 the class. Then, I had the kids buddy up to solve the mystery.
There are several grade levels of math mysteries. When I have kids working on different levels, I print out different grade booklets, but put the same cover on the front for all of them. The stories are the same but the problems are based on the grade level standards.

Make math on Halloween fun, engaging, and educational! Can't ask for more than that, right?!
