Halloween is coming up. At my school, kids are wearing costumes. Basically, if there’s going to be any instruction, it’s going to have to be a little more exciting than our regular routine. I wish wish wish Halloween was on a Friday, but I wasn’t approved to change that, so good luck to everyone! 😉
Side Note: Teach students that sugar does NOT make them hyper. They’ve been told this and use it as an excuse. I shut it down every time I hear it. It drives me nuts when I hear adults make these excuses for kids’ behavior IN FRONT OF THEM. They hear excuses and use them so they don’t have to take responsibility for their poor behavior.
Anyway, I have planned Candy Lab Stations for students to do on Halloween. I want to have a successful day at school while in costumes, so I’m planning accordingly. This isn’t spooky or witchy or goblin-y, so even if your school doesn’t do Halloween stuff, you can totally still do this.
The four mini-labs incorporate what we’ve been studying in physical science. I am SO excited to use these activities as a fun way to review and incorporate content on such an exciting day!
