Last year I realized that my high school ESL students get the same Halloween spiel almost every year, so I decided to mix things up a bit and do a unit with them about the Day of the Dead (all in English!).
This was one of there favorite activities of the unit. Although this could be an optional step, I introduced them to some typical stories associated with countries where this holiday is celebrated. Then, I used this worksheet as a fun, creative writing prompt to have students invent their own stories. My students are at a B1-B2 English level, and I was able to use this activity to fill an entire 55 minute lesson by giving them 30 minutes to write, 10-15 minutes to peer-critique with a partner for grammar/vocabulary mistakes, and the remaining time for sharing.
