Halloween is coming and classrooms around the country are finding fun ways to implement skill development into the theme. Check out this fun science activity in which children of all ages can participate.
Floating ghost science activity:
- 1 sheet of facial tissue paper
- Draw a ghost on the tissue paper and cut it out.
- 1 balloon.
- Blow up the balloon. Have children rub the balloon on their hair to create a static charge.
- Hold the balloon over the ghost and watch it float in the air!
Another fun activity to include during your Halloween theme is learning about the bones in the human body. Provide children with a large skeleton puzzle and help them identify the different parts of the skeleton. Or have a real Halloween skeleton in the classroom to use in your discussion about bones.
