Interesting Facts

Halloween is celebrated on October 31. The day is often associated with the colors orange and black, and with symbols such as carved pumpkins or jack-o-lanterns. Halloween activities often include trick-or-treating, wearing costumes, costume parties, visiting haunted attractions, carving jack-o'-lanterns, and reading spooky stories. In the classroom I liked to focus on a few fun non-scary stories with activities and doing a pumpkin experiment in groups.
