Here's a great way to teach science for Halloween season.
Steve Spangler has released a whole series of Halloween science videos on his you-tube channel.
Spangler uses these videos to teach kids science how to make fog-filled bubbles, fake blood, secret messages, dry ice "smoke" ring launchers, giant glowing bubbles, "dancing" corn starch monsters and more.
Along the way, kids learn about science topics like carbon dioxide, acids and bases, viscosity, chemiluminescence and Non-Newtonian fluids, just to name a few of the topics covered.
The videos average about ten minutes each. There are currently six videos in the series.
