Want a challenging Halloween activity for your middle or high school students? Need ideas for fun activities? Download my free Halloween-themed word search. Includes answer key and several writing prompts and ideas to use in your secondary classroom.

Warning: the word find is difficult. It may take your students a long time to complete and drive them insane. This is how I get back at them when they are being difficult. heehee...just kidding.

Word Search: Use this activity for enrichment or extra-credit. Answer key IS included.

Writing Prompts: Divided up into informative/explanatory, argument/persuasive, and narrative. Choose the prompt for a journal or essay or allow students to choose their own.
