In this lesson, students will practise Halloween vocabulary, and sing a song or watch a story. Depending on stages chosen, they will then invent an animal skeleton, write a spooky story, play a Halloween game, or invent a magic potion. Finally, they will make a paper skeleton, then write and talk about it. To finish off, they can do a quiz, a tongue twister, play a game or read some jokes. For homework, they can complete a worksheet or write about Halloween in their country on the LearnEnglish Kids site.
