Halloween History and Games - Reformation Day Too

Tomorrow is Halloween and in classrooms around the country children will be buzzing with excitement for the candy they may collect. Tomorrow will present teachers with a number of "teachable" moments. To help you take advantage of those moments, Mashable has compiled a list of more than 20 online ways to enjoy Halloween. Among Mashable's list of resources is the History Channel's "History of Halloween" page containing videos, games and other resources.

Tomorrow, October 31st, is also the day that is generally accepted as the day Martin Luther put forth his 95 Theses. PBS Frontline has a lesson plan for teaching the history of this day.
