Of course I am running around like a witch in school. Partly because it’s easy, and partly because I’m egging on the idea that maybe I am a witch in the eyes of some students. Haha, I’m just embracing the role 😉
Anywho, for those teachers interested here is the video I made about the history of Halloween and the PPT game to follow. First do the Halloween intro PPT then the vid and then the game. I’ve found it works best in that order.
Halloween Powerpoint (intro)
In the spirit of Halloween, I leave you with these two stories my students wrote in my after school class. Plus I leave you with the video I made on the history of Halloween. I’ve added the PPT Game I played with my students for anyone interested.
The Cats Town
By Hye Yeong & Hee Gyeong
It was about 1960, there lived a couple. They were going to a trip to the country and they left. But nobody knew where did they went. So the woman’s brother left his home to find them.
He arrived at the country and asked people. But they didn’t know, either. That midnight, he saw one bus. There were two or three people in the bus. He felt strange, but he rode the bus. The bus arrived at a strange village. The people who lived in that village were strange, too. They were wearing old clothes and they didn’t speak. From then on, a person who came to the strange village with him was gone each night. And there was only him left at the Bed and Breakfast. That night he didn’t sleep and waited. Some minutes later, he opened the door and saw people. They were citizens of the strange village.
They wanted to kill him. Because… that village was ‘The Cats Town’, citizens killed people and gave them to cats. They thought cats were their god. Because the Cats Town didn’t communicate with other cities, for about 100 years, they still believed nature was god.
