My kids have nothing but candy on their brains as they anxiously wait to go trick-or-treating so I am planning a whole day of Halloween FUN! Of course learning will still take place but in a very different format than usual. To kick off the day, we will be making spider webs for math. Look how cool these are!
Different number patterns make different designs.
Make sure to use a ruler for the best results.
You can add multiple colors like my sons' friend did. The colors add the WOW factor.
Here is an example that my friend Jen (a.k.a. the art queen) did with her class. You have to hop over to her site at Runde's Room and see her spectacular examples and bulletin board. You'll immediately understand why she is the art queen in my book. I just ♥ her ideas! Jen's blog is also my nine-year-old son (Coen's) favorite blog to follow.
|You can use graph paper to experiment more.|
All the directions using number spirals and graphing can be printed HERE.
Of course I will have to bust out one of my favorite childhood art tools, Spirographs. Anyone else remember using these or am I the oldest mom around on the Blog Block?
After completing the spider webs and some of the activities in my previous Halloween posts, we will be completing LOTS of activities from my new favorite site, Education.com! They have thousands of printables for every grade level and subject area. I printed off several different games and worksheets and made a Halloween packet for my boys.
Warning: Education.com is an educator's dream site so make sure you have lots of ink on hand and your printer is ready to go! You may get lost in the hours of downloading and printing like I did!
Education.com has individual worksheets,
Wishing you lots of treats,
