Join the Halloween Crew in an exhilarating Halloween-themed math activity! In "The Great Halloween Race," students will explore the concept of speed while engaging in a friendly competition between magical creatures.
They will calculate and compare the speeds of the crew members who can fly using brooms, wands, candles, or vampire capes, and those who prefer to run really fast. This exciting activity combines math, problem-solving, and Halloween fun, making it an engaging and educational experience for students.
The learning objective of the activity is for students to develop an understanding of speed and its calculation.
Fluently divide multi-digit numbers using the standard algorithm.
Solve unit rate problems including those involving unit pricing and constant speed. *For example, if it took 7 hours to mow 4 lawns, then at that rate, how many lawns could be mowed in 35 hours? At what rate were lawns being mowed?*
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers.
