Why Should I Use Science Experiments on Halloween?
- Students are often incredibly energetic on Halloween. Instead of trying to teach boring concepts on a holiday, allow students to have fun while still learning science.
- Hands-on activities create a level of student buy-in. There’s motivation to learn and grow now that the student has enjoyed a learning activity.
- Hands-on activities will also allow students to be social. This will help you channel student energy into something academic.
- Have fun with your students! They are able to see your personality and you are able to learn more about them, too.
With the printable pages, you can send them home for students to make with their families, too!
