Children love Halloween, but it's more than just going door-to-door collecting treats. Teach students about the history and science of Halloween in our Canadian production, Halloween: It's More Than Tricks and Treats. Your host Sena and her friends take students on a slighly eerie adventure where they'll learn about bats, black cats, witches, owls and Jack the Miser. You get a bonus Safety segment as well. In Fall Safety, your host Maggie examines school bus safety, schoolyard safety, trick-or-treating safety and farm safety. Your JK-Grade 2 students will love Pumpkin Eye, a Halloween story with just the right amount of spookiness by award-winning author Denise Fleming. Learn to throw a "spooky" Halloween party in Halloween from our Holiday Makeover series and relive a classic story in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
