Students will read and answer text dependent questions on the history of Halloween. They will create a Venn Diagram about Halloween past and present, and analyze their information. They will imagine they get to make the rules about Halloween and answer questions about what will change and what will remain the same. Students will rank three separate categories of Halloween themed activities 1 - 8 and then collect data and graph their classmates responses. They will analyze their graph and write a statement about what they learned and how the information might inform a store owner that sells Halloween items. There is also instructions on a draw and write activity that has students rotate around drawing a funny monster and writing about it.
