Zombies and mummies yesterday, why not ghosts today? I love the accompanying activity guide, because it can be printed out and collated ahead of time and placed in a writing center. When students have some extra time, they can make their own How to Make Friends with a Ghost book.
Activity name: Make your own How to Make Friends with a Ghost book.
Activity description: Have the books printed out ahead of time. Then, students can fill in the missin information. First, they'll have to draw something that could be mistaken for a ghost. Second, they'll have to label the various parts of a ghost. Third, they'll have to write a short autobiography. Fourth, they'll have to craft a recipe their ghost might enjoy. Finally, students will have to identify a food item their ghost is sometimes mistaken for. Tons of ghostly fun!
The Magic Three: Writing, Teaching and Creating
I'll be posting about writing, creating and teaching, the magic threes, on the threes the 3rd, the 13th, and the 23rd. (Yes, I know my first post was on the 22nd...oops!) Looking forward to sharing with you.
