At our house Halloween ranks right up there with Christmas as far as favorite holidays are concerned. The 2 April Kids love movies about monsters, vampires, zombies and everything else creepy. This year like most years Halloween week is full of fun activities that each family member enjoys with some educational opportunities mixed in.
Learning About the True History of Halloween
I love building Chipmunk’s Social Studies/History unit studies around History Channel, and Discovery Channel. Every major holiday History.com (History Channel’s website) offers a plethora of videos, articles and other media about the history of Halloween. There is information for every type of learner. If you feel overwhelmed with the amount of resources on the site just using the videos and having a discussion is a great start.
