Math Addition Craftivity - Build a Monster


Looking for an engaging, differentiated, and challenging addition math activity and craft to enrich your students? They get to design their own monster! Students will love getting to shop for their monster parts, and you will love the enriched math practice they get along the way. This pack would be perfect for second and third grade, and can easily be differentiated to meet needs in fourth grade!



  • Teacher Tips & Instructions for teaching this pack
  • Monster Shop: Differentiated sheets are offered, as well as editable menus where you can set your own prices. There are two identical menus - one uses double digit numbers, and one uses triple digit numbers. Select which one is appropriate for your students to use for the rest of the activities.
  • Monster Value Task Cards: Students will find the value of 8 monsters by adding up the cost of their body parts. This is *challenging* - it's great for small group, early finishers or enrichment. Keep in mind students will be adding 6-7 numbers.
  • Monster Parts Shopping: Students will fill out an order form as they select the parts to build their own monster. There is also a more concise sheet for them to fill out to display with their monster.
  • Build Your Monster: After students have done the math to shop for their monster, they can put it together for a festive hallway display! B&W templates for all pieces are included.
