Product Description
This presentation contains a 50 slide PowerPoint lesson in editable PPT format with a work paper that accompany the lesson.
This lesson includes:
- The origin and history of this holiday to modern day celebrations
- The Salam witch trials
- Why do we dress up and what are costume choices say about us
- What costumes do Americans search for before Halloween (by states)
- Can we scientifically disprove the existence of vampires?
- Interesting facts about Halloween
- Candy and Halloween
- Halloween traditions
- To carve a pumpkin or not?
- A work paper with an activity – writing a Halloween story, by using the words given.

This presentation is packed with information, since I use it for different levels of English and different ages.
I’ve left it as an editable PPT format , so feel free to skip the information that doesn’t suit the grade or level that you’re teaching, by hiding the slide (right click on the slide you want to hide and click ‘hide slide’), you can always bring it back for other classes.

*** This lesson can also be purchased as a part of a money saving “Holiday bundle”

I hope you enjoy this lesson

NOTE: When I use an outside source for my lessons, you’ll find the link to the original source (for further reference ) Under the slide, in the note section.
PLEASE: My lessons are proof-read by me, (but more importantly, by more serious and intelligent critics) However, it’s been our experience that there’s always something that we miss… if you find a mistake or feel that there is room for improvements, please let me know in the "Ask a Question" section (rather than rate the entire document badly), I promise to fix it immediately and you’ll have my deepest gratitude.
