Spooky Science

Celebrate the science behind the scare this Halloween!

Your class can uncover the science of mummies, take a closer look at skeletons, or hear about the legend of glowing wounds. Students can create monster bugs and hear about a special species of jumping spiders. Find out about a giant snake from the past and some hungry pythons causing problems today. Discover a new development in forensics or hear how the old technique of leeching is still being used.

Also, learn how one teacher’s Halloween-inspired reading of Stella Luna led to non-traditional, interdisciplinary teaching methods.
