This spooky Send Home Science fall-themed kit contains awesome science activities for students to do at home for fun or during distance learning. They will bring wonder and inquiry into your classroom this fall season!

UPDATED! This now contains a new PDF of single-page experiments that can be easily uploaded into Google Classroom or other LMS. It also has an updated parent note for supplies, and an updated learning journal.

As kits, these will make awesome gifts for Halloween or fall-themed classroom parties. This "spooky" Halloween Edition is also PERFECT for teachers to send home during distance learning. These activities make great in-class activities for Halloween and/or fall-themed science centers, too. Most of the activities can be done "together" as a class during a Zoom meeting or video conference.

**NOTE: The activities in this kit have a spooky, "Halloween" tone, without being directly related to Halloween. There are multiple tag options included in this kit. The activities themselves do not mention Halloween.

Activities Included:

The Screaming Cup- sound vibrations

Jack O'Flip- Optical Illusion

Ooze- making a solution

Disappearing Candy- dissolving candy corn in liquids

Seed Dissection- dissecting pumpkin seed

Cotton Candy Caper- dissolving a solid

Don't Get Caught!- spider web science

Candy Stick Trick- acids/bases

Mummy Magic- preservation

These are all new experiments and are different than my other Send Home Science Kits.


The materials needed for kits assembly are inexpensive to buy and are readily available. These kits are put together using quart-size zip-top baggies. Suggested materials include 5-7 pumpkin seeds, drinking straws, Pixy Stix, a small bag of candy corn, and a small bag of cotton candy. There are also optional pantry materials like baking soda, cornstarch, and salt that are needed for the experiments but are found in most households.

In addition, this file contains a complete shopping list and assembly instructions for teachers. As a bonus, this file contains bag toppers in both color and blackline. There is also an optional "quick and easy" label that you can just print and put in the bag in lieu of a folded topper. Toppers that say "Halloween" and "Spooky" are both included.
