I downloaded Teacher Rick's Halloween ppt from here, but my teachers said the monsters might be too scary for middle school. So, here's my adapted version. If you use it, be sure to change slide 49, since it has my name in the question. :)

Can you tell me where Teacher Rick's original game is? I was looking at it this afternoon here and now I can't find it. Thanks.

I had posted one yesterday for 3rd grade but it's gone today.  Antique car on top.

Too scary for middle school? naaaaaahhh. Well, at least at an all-boys school, I can't imagine these boys think they are too scared of anything. Thanks for uploading this though! Just having it filled with questions makes my life a lot easier for adapting it for my afterschool class this coming Friday.

This is very interesting Halloween stuff. I might mix it in with my lessons right before Halloween.

Thanks for all the uploader/posters!

Thanks a million times. Today I was told to do a game/activity on Halloween in two weeks. You're a life saver. I was not sure where to start. Will definitely use this!!

This game truly is amazing!  Thanks for posting.  My kids will love it! One embarrassing problem, though, I don't know the answers to many questions! Would it be possible to post them if not too much work? :-[

I didn't know some of the answers either, but they pop up if you click the screen (as you have been warned NOT to do).

Great game, I am definitely using this.

Also, 34+57-59 is 32, not 31, so you might want to change slide 45.

Thanks for this. I think my the adapted version will be good for my coteachers! The original version with monsters will freak them out! Haha.

I have trouble opening zip files on my school computer... does anyone know how to open downloads on windows (I have a mac at home, so I know how to do it there) to convert to ppt?

If not I might download this on my mac and move with a zipdrive. Hopefully this works.

This is completely awesome!  Thank you so much for posting this! To the teacher who made this, from me: Teacher, one day my wish is to be as good at making powerpoints as you!"

Is anyone else having a problem with the links on the "The door is open" slides? If I go through those slides it resets all tack pictures on the main slide (6). I'm using office 2010 if that makes a difference. And I tried on both versions posted above.

Thanks!

I have made a pretty cool Prezi on Dia de los Muertos and Halloween with Rick's game attached to match.

The Prezi covers a bit of history and comparisons between the past and the present.

http://prezi.com/khmoqiqrq2qp/celebrating-the-dead/

While the kids are settling down I play some of these videos:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ek3p8F-es7c
A short animation with a catchy tune for Dia de los Muertos.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxcM3nCsglA
The Monster Mash, showing various Halloween monsters.

Thereafter I just ask the kids to mention whatever comes to mind when they think of Halloween.

I show them the Halloween song from The Nightmare Before Christmas and get them to count the amount of times the word is said in the song.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOtEdhKOMgQ

At the end of the presentation we all play Rick's game. (I have added questions already)
At the Trick or Treat slide, the first team to put their hands up and complete the song gets 5 points.

The winning team gets a back of marshmalows.

A lot of the ideas and materials have been gleaned from other presentations on here, so thanks to all the original creators, you know who you are!
