Pumpkin Coordinate Graphing

This activity requires students to use coordinate pairs to correctly color in the squares of the grid to create a jack-o-lantern.  This is an activity from the Mathwire season fall collection.

Introduce young students to coordinate pairs using letters and numbers, reinforcing the concept that the letter (horizontal) coordinate is listed first in an ordered pair. Younger students begin by graphing in the space.  Later, students transition to ordered pairs, graphing the point at the intersection.

  1. Thanks! I used to do this years ago. It's a lot of fun. I actually forgot about it, so it's nice to see the activity again.
