“The Best” Places to learn about the history of Halloween.
An extensive list of Halloween History. The NY Times Slide Show and History Channel videos were especially good. Scroll a little further down the page for some great learning games with spooky themes.
“Teacher’s Love SMART Boards” Has an exhaustive list of engaging educational activities for your little monsters. I thought the Mad-Libs style “Horror Movie” story was especially interesting.
Hersheys has a nice selection (go figure!) of Halloween activities. I thought the down-loadable certificates for the class games and contests had nice potential.
