"It's always a mystery. Not what it seems to be. Always a mystery, just between you and me."
-Ronnie James Dio

Note: If you do not have access to the movie Monster House, do not use this product.

A simple activity that I put together this year for my students went over incredibly well. The interactive Monster House is the crafty little activity my students enjoyed so much. To complete the activity, the students simply utilize the interactive designs included and input the requested mystery concepts (with regards to the movie). Then, just allow their creative minds to take flight and create a magical presentation!

As a bonus, key mystery terms with definitions are included, as well as mystery expert assessment!

Included in the guide:
3 - Terms of Use
4 - Core Standards
5 - Things to Keep in Mind
6 - 7: Directions
8 - 13: Interactive Templates
