This engaging Halloween lesson and activity includes a reading comprehension passage about the holiday and directions and materials to create a 3D haunted house lantern decoration. It also includes teacher directions with a link to a demonstration video, an answer key, and a scoring rubric.

Reading Passage - The reading passage explains that Halloween is a holiday celebrated worldwide on October 31st. The Halloween we celebrate today is a combination of an ancient Celtic holiday called Samhain and the Catholic All Hallows' Eve. It goes on to describe how Halloween is celebrated, including costumes, trick-or-treating, carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns, parades, bonfires, and haunted houses.

Haunted House Lantern Craft- This download includes directions with pictures, a video demonstration, and all templates needed to create a haunted house lantern craft. Students color and assemble the haunted house, gluing tissue paper in the windows, then place it on top of a battery powered tea light to create a lantern. Turn off the lights for a spooky Halloween decoration that's tons of fun to make!
