Halloween Fun

Halloween is almost here. The following ideas are great for simple, last minute learning activities.

Get the party started by making your own pin the nose on the Jack o’ lantern game.

OR..make a jack o’ lantern design game, where you can create a variety of different noses, eyes, mouths..etc  to experiment with.  Seize a teaching opportunity by describing the faces and making comments like, “This face looks surprised now that we have changed the eyes” or “This face looks worried now that we changed the mouth.”
