“There is magic, but you have to be the magician. You have to make the magic happen.” ~ Sidney Sheldon, Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Halloween is a great time to get kids and teens to learn hands-on, participate in global collaboration projects, learn about other cultures and be creative. Students love the spooky stories, monsters, sounds, music, dances, treats, traditions, haunted houses, and costumes that surround Halloween.
