Halloween Math Worksheets

What is Halloween? A holiday that is celebrated on the 31st of October every year is known as Halloween. The traditions originated along with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. On the day of Samhain, people come out dressed in costumes to ward off ghosts and would light bonfires. Pope Gregory III in the 18th century designated November 1st as a time to honor all saints. Eventually, traditions of the Samhain were incorporated in All Saints Day.

Gradually, Halloween became a day with activities, especially children, where they would travel around to trick or treat. One of the most important traditions that evolved was carving the jack-o-lanterns, dressing up in costumes, and eating treats. Religiously, people light candles on the graves of the dead. This spooky time of year is one of my favorites. We put a great deal of time into creating fun worksheets for this area. Enjoy! You can use it to your advantage to teach a wide array of concepts or reinforce things students already should know.
