Description

In this Halloween math project students are asked to create a Haunted Mansion design. They must use reading, measurement, and problem solving skills to create a map of required rooms + some of their own using the given dimensions.

There are three versions of this activity to meet the needs of all learners in your classroom. This is an excellent way to practice mathematical problem solving and review measurement skills, perimeter and area.

Students love talking about all their ideas for rooms in the mansion (Werewolf in the Woods! Haunted Roller Skating Rink!) and you’ll love how engaged they are with measurement skills.

The product includes a PDF document with three versions of the task for built in differentiation.

Includes:

  • Teacher notes and day by day instructions
  • Instruction letter outlining design task for students
  • Room information sheet for students
  • Graph paper (19×20 and 20×19)
  • Instruction letter to students (simpler version)
  • Room information sheet (simpler version)
  • Graph paper (14×17 and 17×14) (matches simpler problem version)
  • Challenge Problem room information for advanced mathematicians (matches 19×20 graph paper)
  • Thank you

Activity Instructions:

This activity typically takes 3-4 days if students use the included graph paper. If you choose to have them use blank construction paper it can be up to a week long activity.

Day 1

Students read the letter and brainstorm ideas for additional rooms. They can also start a sketch to help them plan how they might like to arrange the required rooms for the floor. Most students will want to talk about all their amazing ideas for new rooms in the mansion.

Day 2

Have blank art paper (much more difficult!) or graph paper available for students. They can start arranging and labeling the required rooms. You will want more than one graph paper per student. Some students might want to cut out the rooms on one graph page and try a variety of arrangements on the second.

Day 3+

Have students share how they have decided to place the required rooms and how much room they have left for their own ideas. Did students randomly place rooms or organize them in equal rows of 5 squares (for the first version) or 4 squares (for the second version) to maximize space?

My students always want to decorate every room with spooky creatures, gravestones, and cobwebs. Before they do this we talk about how architects draw their plans as a bird’s eye view.

Have students find the perimeter and/or area of each of the rooms if time allows.
