A fun and easy-to-do Halloween activity for Grades 2-5, which is ideal for a bit of spooky fun and for creating a simple display.
The objective of the lesson is for the children to create an imaginative list of 10 things that a Halloween horror character would have in their 'Little Bag of Horrors'. Their choices can be as disgusting or creepy as they like, allowing for plenty of creative writing opportunities.
The resource also has two writing support frames, so the task can easily be differentiated to your class' needs. I have used the activity in Grades 2-5, but it can also be easily adapted for younger children.
• Teacher PowerPoint presentation - provides instructions and examples for introducing the activity.
• Writing frame 1 - can be completed with the 10 chosen items and then used for display.
• Writing frame 2 - can be used to add imaginative written details about each of the children's 10 items and can then also form part of the display.
