💀 Chilling Charades
Write each word on a piece of scrap paper, fold them up, and put them into a container. To play, divide your class or small group into 2 teams. Teams will take turns sending up 1 student to choose a word from the bowl and get 30 seconds to act out the word soundlessly for their team. If no one guesses the word it goes back into the bowl and no point is given. Once every student has had their turn to act out a word, the game is over and the group with the highest points wins.
🧪 Scary Sentences
Have students practice writing full sentences with words from the list. As a challenge, see how many sentences they can write that use more than 1 of the words.
We also have a Halloween Word Search for Younger Students!
