Today Halloween fell on a Monday. I struggled with what to do with my sixth grade science class and came up with a Halloween story with demonstrations. I wrote a story last night until 11pm. It was actually a pretty good story all and all. It was basically about three kids trick-or-treating and finding themselves exploring an abandoned house only to find a wrinkled lady with a very pointed black hat. During the story I used dry ice for a number of demonstrations that the kids loved. One of these included taking a metal ice cream scoop and holding it against the dry ice. This makes a great squeaky door sound. Actually it was more like a screaming door! I plan to revise my story and post it to my Teachers Pay Teachers store to help teachers for next years Halloween. It turned out to be a very enjoyable day.
