Purchase Dem Bones candy made by Brach's Candies at a local drug store. I have found them at Ekerds, Rite Aide, and Target. Sometimes they are difficult to find. If you are having trouble you can order 24 small bags for under $4.00 from Oriental Trading. Oriental Trading changed the name of the bones and they are now called just bones. So when you search to buy the bones, search bones.
In the bags you will find sugar flavored skulls, ribs, bones, and feet. This is a great lesson to do in October. It doesn't scream the word Halloween. Still, it is fun to do around this time of year.
I have done the lessons below with a General Grade 2 classroom and grades k-3 in a Special Education Resource Room.
To start my lesson, I like to read the students books about bones. Two of my favorite are found below. If you click on the books you can learn more about them at AMAZON.COM! You can even purchase them there if you would like to!
Other books on Bones!
Have you seen the ghost marshmallows around? They are hard to find... I found some at Target in September and haven't seen them since... You know how ghosts can be? Anyhow, if you do find them, you can have your kiddos sort and graph them. You can download my sorting sheet and graph here
I found something good at Oriental
Trading. They are called Spooky Cookies. They are so cute
and they come with a good amount in each package. My kids
think they are yummy and at only 7g of sugar per package,
I am happy to give them the treat. Perfect Halloween
snack for graphing (K-2) and sorting (Prek-1). Of course,
I made a sorting sheet and graphing sheet I will share
with you. So hop over to Oriental Trading and order those
cookies for your class or or a Halloween party. Not only
will the kids say yummy, they will be learning too!
Oriental Trading is sells a candy
called Gooey Ghosts. Basically, a colored gummy candy
shaped like ghosts.

Here's another one using Betty
Crocker Halloween Fruit Snacks (found these at

more advanced. I would use it with support in grade
K and 1st. Second and Third graders should be able
to do this independently. The activity is two pages
and should be printed front to back.
The activity looks like:
