This reading gives information about the history / beginnings of Halloween, traditions, Jack-O-Lantern information and costume customs. The last page has three short answer questions (relating to the reading) and a word search.
Key word vocabulary box is also used. I read a book about Jack-O-Lanterns before the kids did this activity.
I used this activity in my English as a Second Language room, but it is great for any elementary grade 2-6.
