Are you looking for some fun Halloween activities for kids in your class?
Sure, you need to be careful about it – high school kids are too old for costumes and trick-or-treating. Still, there are many ways of using the mood of Halloween to enhance learning. How about using mystery and horror short stories to help students explore an author’s style in an English class?
In math class, students’ plans to turn the gym into a haunted house can be used to review basic math concepts.
