50+ Wicked Halloween Ideas, Resources, & Apps

“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. Below are tons of resources, lesson ideas, apps, games, recipes and resources for any teacher to celebrate in full force. These activities can be adapted to use throughout the year or to celebrate fall in case your school doesn’t allow you to celebrate Halloween.
