Latin teachers have been sharing ideas for Halloween-time activities on the Latinteach listserv. Here is one teacher’s contribution:
When I taught in middle school, I did a unit on Superstition in Ancient Rome (also good for Friday the 13th) and included a variety of phobia. What they also liked was receiving a list of Halloween terms in Latin (witch, bat, pumpkin, ghost, etc.) which they used as a springboard for a drawing, with labels in Latin. Some really great results!
With the high school Latin Club, we are painting small pumpkins a la red-figure or back-figure pottery.
