Halloween: Culture and Quiz!
« on: October 26, 2011, 11:05:56 am »
Hey everyone,

This is a halloween ppt I made. It has a little bit on culture: begins with what most people think of halloween (I ask students first before showing them slides), before I discuss the origins and a bit of history and them some crazy pumpkin carvings that I thought they would get a kick out of. Detailed notes on the history are on slides :) Then I have students play the quiz in teams that include some fun trivia, and to test whether they paid attention! Team with most points will earn candy!

Please feel free to comment on this lesson! I'm always looking to improve my lessons! Hope your students enjoy it!

Thanks for the ppt Shufan.  I'm actually using it in class today.  See you around Seosan.

It works pretty well.  I'm using it in conjunction with the first Simpsons Tree House of Horror.  I had to brush up on my Halloween history because as Americans we're not really taught the history behind it.  Anyways here is the blog link for the Simpsons episode.  It has Korean subs and it's a nice change of pace for the kids.
