Fun and FREE for Halloween!

I haven't been able to do this one in recent years due to students with religious differences, but it was always so cute in the past!  Here is an easy activity for your kids to practice their cardinal direction AND geometry.  It's a Jack-o-Lantern Face map!
Jack-o-lantern Face Map

Cut out a large pumpkin onto poster board as the template.  (You can use the one I've attached too.)  Students trace and cut out a large pumpkin out of orange construction paper.  Then they will need to choose a shape for each facial feature of the Jack-o-Lantern.  They will record this on their map key.  Next the students cute the shape out of black construction paper and glue them wherever they choose on the face.  They can glue them on in the conventional facial feature areas or make the face goofy.

Fill in the blanks, draw your compass rose and viola!  Jack-o-Lantern Face Map!  This is great as a center as well.

Maybe this year I'll go ahead and do it . . . and the students who cannot participate in a Jack-o-lantern can do a regular face instead.  You can even use intermediate directions for students who need more challenge.
