Twenty spooky drama activities to use during the witching season!

This mini-collection is packed with fresh activities that will inspire you and have your students asking for more. Here is an example:

Through the Dark, Dark Wood

Have students line up in two lines facing each other (like a corridor) and then have them hold up their arms and lock fingers with the player across from them to form archways. One at a time, students must go through the dark, dark wood in a specific manner. If possible, play spooky music during this activity, or invite students to make sounds that correspond with what each student is doing.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Like a ghost
  • Like a vampire
  • Like a black cat
  • Like a bat
  • Like a zombie
  • As if they are flying on a broomstick
