Activity Description

This Halloween-themed worksheet engages students in a fun and educational exploration of geometry through a whimsical scenario set in an enchanted pumpkin patch. Students will be challenged to calculate the area of differently shaped pumpkin plots to identify the one with the largest area, where they'll discover the best pumpkins.

Following are the shapes of pumpkin plots

  1. Circle
  2. Square
  3. Triangle
  4. Irregular shaped

By applying geometry in the context of a Halloween-themed scenario, students can see how mathematical concepts relate to real-life situations.

This worksheet is a classroom-ready interactive digital worksheet that needs a few clicks to assign to your classroom. The worksheet is auto-scored, teachers just need to open the real-time console and monitor the student progress.

Learning Objective

Common Core: MATH

Geometry

Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

Geometry

Solve problems involving scale drawings of geometric figures, including computing actual lengths and areas from a scale drawing and reproducing a scale drawing at a different scale.

Geometry

Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, volume and surface area of two- and three-dimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms.
