It’s hard for kids to contain their excitement as Halloween approaches. Of course, the best way to keep your students focused and learning during the lead up to trick-or-treat is to bring Halloween into the classroom.
We’ve curated this list of Halloween-themed STEM activities to give you some easy and productive ways to make the holiday part of your curriculum, whether you’re teaching preschool, kindergarten, third, or even eighth grade. You can find even more ideas on our Pinterest board.
If your school doesn’t celebrate Halloween, don’t worry – many of these activities work well in class apart from that holiday. Several involve apples or pumpkins, which you can always incorporate into your lesson plans around Thanksgiving.
