The History of Halloween Summarizing Activity

Resource Type
Formats Included

This fun summarizing activity includes a short reading about the history of Halloween and a cute, Halloween-themed GIST template to help students find the 5 Ws and then summarize what they read.

Aligned with CCSS and WIDA ELD Standards.

Originally developed for my 4th grade ESOL students, but great to help mainstream students in grades 3-6 with summarizing.
