Halloween at School: Grade 6

Here’s the final project I did, the only one of which there was no educational value behind except the cultural experience of understanding a Western holiday. Part of this was because I couldn’t think of a way to incorporate their lesson without making it heinously boring. But the other (more benevolent) half was because, as grade sixers graduating in just a few months and off the the hell that is Korean middle school, I figured it would be the last purely fun activity in school they’d ever have.

So we made foam mobiles. Foambiles, if you will.

They seemed to really enjoy them – my particularly troublesome class the most, which was a great surprise!

Here they are, along with the finished classroom decorations.

  1. Wonderful to incorporate crafts/art. You could even do a project making those marionettes (simpler version sock with stuffing for head in rounded ball shape secured with a tied string at neck), cloth draped over it secured with string at neck…strings at “wrists”, hair glue gunned on, strings attached at wrists and head…NOT the long version with all the sewing…QUICK like the adapted version I made with Robyn. And then incorporate learning lesson with a small marionette play done by groups.

  2. guess there is the conundrum – – – to follow the curriculum plan in a textbook and the lesson plan from the teacher and meet the deadline assigned for the class. A tough job that no wonder keeps you up at night. Keep on trucking girl ! >: 0)
