This collection of seasonal projects has students apply concepts from geometry, measurement and fractions to the guessing of pumpkin circumference and weight; the creation of jack-o-lanterns, Halloween masks, glyphs, and other autumnal artwork; and more. Measurement Man is constructed to display the unit conversions for measures of capacity. Instructions (pdf) are included. The page continues with other projects that have a Halloween theme, and mentions connections to resources from children's literature.
