Spooky Classroom Mapping for Halloween!


Here’s  a fun classroom activity for your students this Halloween using our USA Places and Geographic Features map.

Have your students label a USA map with cities and towns that have Halloween-related names!

They can learn more about the USA while having Halloween fun!  It is fun decorate their special Spook-City map with holiday images!

Below is a list of the cities, towns and areas that have Halloween-related names!  Label them on the map! BONUS: Have your students find even more places that are not on this list.

It would be a fun challenge to find a Spook-City location for each state!

Fun Fact

(A fun fact!  We learned that the US government does not use apostrophes in place names! So Deadmans Corner is punctuated properly, by the US Board on Geographic names! There are only 5 places in the USA that still allow the use of an apostrophe. One of them is Martha’s Vineyard – can you find the other four? )
