ITEMS INCLUDED

  • 32 Fact Cards on Halloween (print)
  • 4 Recording Sheets (print)
  • Answer Key (print)
  • 72 Boom Digital Cards
  • Banner Reading 'Happy Halloween' ( 4 options)
  • Writing Templates x 12 featuring Halloween related backgrounds - students write 2-3 facts and add illustrations; would also be useful to write on a writing prompt

Scavenger Hunt Activity

Place the 32 fact cards on Halloween around the classroom. Students can work individually, in pairs, or in small groups to find the answers to all 32 questions on their recording sheets. They must read the fact card to find the answer for each corresponding fact question on their response sheets.

Digital Activity

  • Assign the 72 Boom Cards Deck via Google Classroom or your school's LMS.

  • Students will read information cards and answer multiple-choice questions. Students who need additional reading support have the option to listen to the included audio on each information card.

  • To make the activity more fun, and motivate students to read and complete the task, students will 'collect' the arms, legs, torso, eyes, and mouth to build a monster at the end.

  • With this activity, your students will benefit from reading practice in addition to getting key information on interesting Halloween facts.

  • This deck is created in Flow Magic, so students have the option to go back and read the fact card again in order to respond to the multiple-choice question.

Evidence of Learning

  • After the entire class has finished the Scavenger Hunt, you can display these cards on the interactive whiteboard and discuss answers. This way students can reflect on their responses while referring to the questions again.

  • Have students write 2-3 facts on Halloween on a writing template of choice. As the backgrounds featured are plain and simple, they can add further illustrations.

  • These templates can also be used to write on a given prompt.

NOTE: you can select any number of cards (1- 18) or (19-32) depending upon time available. Print out recording sheets accordingly.
