I’m so excited about this round up! I think this is the largest round up in MJCS history! October is the beginning of some crazy months in the classroom. Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are back to back fun, so being prepared with engaging activities is a must! These Halloween activities for the classroom will keep your month completely booked with fun, engaging, and spooky learning!
I’m glad to share with you some great bloggers from all over that created some fantastic Halloween activities. These Halloween activities range from STEM activities all the way down to crafts that you can use to decorate your learning space.
STEM activities are all the rage in the classrooms, and for good reason!
