I remember a time when Halloween was nothing more than dressing up and running from house to house in search of the greatest candy bars. Fast-forward to 2008 and Halloween is a big deal… elaborate costumes, parties galore and merchandising second only to Christmas. Oh, did I mention that it’s a dream come true for the highly-motivated, somewhat neurotic science teacher who can’t wait to make things glow, ooze, pop, scream and gross out everyone who is willing to participate.
If you’re one of these teachers, please keep reading (because I need your help). This year, we’re compiling a list of the best Halloween Science Demos… so far. You’ll find some of my favorites in the list below, but this is just the starting point. I want to know your best Halloween Science Demos.
Just post a comment below and share what makes your students (or children) scream with excitement!
