The following Halloween Math Activities for elementary and middle school students are samples from my best-selling PDF math workbooks: 101 Two Truths and One Lie! Math Activities for Grades 3-5 and 101 Two Truths and One Lie! Math Activities for Grades 6-8.

Two Truths and One Lie (2T1L) math activities revolve around your students being presented with three facts, images, or statements (only two of which are true). The objective is for students to identify which statement is false and justify why (verbally, in writing, or both).

2T1L activities are an excellent strategy for boosting student engagement, sparking mathematical thinking, and opening small-group or full-class discussions. They are great for warm-up and cool-down activities during the first or final minutes of class.
