I am talking about Halloween week of course! I am still trying to find out who I send my petition to about having Halloween permanently moved to the last Friday in October instead of October 31st.
We always do pumpkin math and science activities with our classes to help us keep the students engaged and learning (in spite of the candy and goblins on our brains) but this year we stepped it up a notch! On Tuesday we had Super Science Spooktacular Day! Each class got to visit the teachers on our team for a science investigation. The investigations were Halloween themed. (One was fire safety since it was still fire safety month.) This way the students got to do 4 investigations, but each teacher only had to plan and prepare for one!
Some of the activities came from the fabulous Deanna Jump, others were from us. The day was a HUGE success! How could it not be since dry ice, fire, water and spiders were involved? The activities were very cool and the kiddos loved them, but I was most excited that the students were able to tell me the science concept they learned in each room!
