It's Halloween! And we all know that students like Halloween! So every educator has one or two activities in the classroom about Halloween.

National Geographic published an interesting article that can be used in schools. It's an interesting resource for students that will enriched lessons. 
The article includes a wonderful list of useful links that teachers can explore on their own way, according students profile they are teaching.

Education: 

Halloween is a cross-curricular subject and students will love to work and explore their creativity in different matters. At the same time, they will evolve curricular skills.

Curricula: Languages, Arts, Music, Civics
All levels: (primary, elementary, high junior education)

Students will be encouraged to be creative using their own smart phones and digital tablets in the classroom, devices that help to better preparing students to thrive in an increasingly digital world. And they love it! They are active in the activities that teachers propose for the course.
