This afternoon one of my students asked me what my daughters are going to be for Halloween. That question reminded me that Halloween will be here soon. If you find yourself starting to look for some Halloween-themed math or science lessons for elementary school, take a look at the following items.
PBS Learning Media also has a collection of Halloween-themed science and mathematics lessons. PBS Learning Media’s Halloween collection includes lessons that can be used in elementary school, middle school, and high school classrooms. One of the elementary school Halloween-themed lessons is all about the historical traditions that contributed to the creation of Halloween. The materials for this lesson include a short video, video discussion questions, and a vocabulary sheet. The middle school and high school resources in PBS Learning Media’s Halloween collection are videos without any other supporting materials. In the collection you’ll find videos about why things sound scary, flesh-eating beetles, and supernatural elements in Macbeth. All of the items in PBS Learning Media’s Halloween collection can be shared to Google Classroom where you can add questions for students answer after watching the videos.
