Have some fun this Halloween and let your students spook the classroom by creating their very own scary story! This activity is a great way to help your students go through the steps of the creative writing process while have some festive fun!
This packet includes:
1 Plot Chart
1 Character Creation Graphic Organizer
1 Set the Scene Drawing Page
1 Writing Template
1 Optional Extra Credit Assignment
Students will create a plot for their stories, create characters to fill the plots, and design settings for their stories. An optional extra credit opportunity allowing the students to create their own book cover has been included. This is a great way for the students to practice the creative writing process while enjoying the holiday!
I have used this as both a group assignment and an individual assignment. Either method works, but I liked using it as a group assignment so the students could complete it in class. This took my students roughly two 45 minute class periods to complete.
