Scarecrow Math Craftivity

Fall is in the air and there are so many fun activities to do with you class during this season.  We just completed this adorable Scarecrow Math Craftivity to practice counting by tens.

You will need a hat cut out a brown construction paper, a strip of yellow paper, large wiggly eyes, pipe cleaner (optional) and 6 jumbo popsicle sticks with the number 10-60 on it.

Have your learners cut the yellow papers into strips and cut a few in half for the bangs of the scarecrow.

Next, let them glue the paper to the hat and glue the half strips of paper on the center of the hat.

Then, have the learners place the popsicle sticks in the correct order. 

 They may then glue the sticks on top of the yellow paper.

Finally, turn the scarecrow over and glue on the scarecrow's face.  Wiggly eyes, a pom-pom nose and pipe cleaner mouth or just draw it on with a permanent marker.  

All done!  You have a fun and easy craft that can be done as a math center, small group activity or as a mini-lesson to help teach or reinforce skip counting by tens!  Find more ideas on my blog, Mrs. Jones' Creation Station.
