Explore the history and science of Halloween with this new Canadian production!

Ghosts. Goblins. Bats. Black Cats. Spiders. Zombies. Witches. Monsters! Although they don’t really exist outside of our imagination, for one day every year, they are allowed to roam the streets. That day is October 31st - Halloween.

In this fun-filled, slightly spooky video, students learn about the origins of Halloween, along with interesting historical and scientific facts on some of the symbols we most often associate with it. Short, informative segments give students insight into why bats were believed to be evil; why early Europeans feared the eerie call of an owl; and much more.

In a SPECIAL BONUS SEGMENT, Trick or Treat: Staying Safe on the Street, we cover Halloween safety rules in detail. Children learn important tips to make Halloween a safe and fun-filled day and night.

Includes: DVD & Student Worksheets.
