Well- it’s that time of year again- Halloween is approaching and there are some wonderful ways to connect the excitement of Halloween to engaging science demonstrations and investigations. Can you find an activity or demo in the sources below and use it to not only engage your students but to help them understand an important concept in science? I would love to hear of some success stories.
For starters you may want to check out last year’s Halloween Science post click HERE.
The ultimate source of Halloween Science demos and activities has to be Steve Spangler click HERE
