Blank head stone or tombstone. Grave stone fun for Halloween or anytime. Make a graveyard of epitaphs. Use this headstone or gravestone to have students write a character epitaph or summary of a book in which a main character dies. Students can focus on character traits and what makes a character memorable.
For instance, it can be used with the Diary of Anne Frank, or The Cay by Theodore Taylor. Goes well with Where the Red Fern Grows and Maniac Magee. You can also use these to make a graveyard for dead verbs or words. You get 3 different images on PowerPoint slides, which you can project on a whiteboard or upload to Google Slides. The artwork is not editable, but you or your students can write on the slides by adding textboxes. You can make a great bulletin board display and your students will enjoy creating epitaphs on these.
