What is Halloween? 4 Explanatory videos for students

As the trick-and-treating season draws to a close, kids are getting more and more excited. Halloween is back to bring some joy and fun, things you lost in a difficult epidemic year. But while Halloween is a time of celebration and celebration, we, teachers and educators, can also turn an educational occasion into teaching our children about a variety of topics, such as cultural diversity, tolerance, empathy, social justice. .

There are also digital activities this season and throughout the year to keep children engaged in fun learning experiences. There are also books and apps full of interactive games, scary stories and challenges that will not only enable children to enjoy their Halloween season but also ensure that they keep learning while doing it.

But what is Halloween? What is the story behind it? Why is it celebrated every October 31st? What has the Celtics got to do with Halloween? When and where did this ancient cultural tradition first emerge? Why do kids wear scary costumes during Halloween? What is the story behind the trick and treatment? What does Samhain have to do with Halloween? What other cultural practices are involved in the celebration of Halloween?

These and many other questions may have come to the minds of many of our students and they need answers. Remember, learning is always effective when it comes to experiential, timely and tangible real needs / objectives. To that end, I’ve compiled a collection of YouTube videos that you can use to educate your classmates about this great cultural tradition called Halloween. You can see them together in class and bring students in pairs to answer some of these questions before engaging the whole class in group discussions.
