Product Description
If you are looking for an incredibly engaging lesson plan for Halloween that will actually keep your candy-filled students quiet, look no further!

"Halloween Collaborative Story Time" is a communal story-telling activity in which students practice using Freytag's Pyramid plot structure in their own narrative writing. In this activity, each student begins a story inspired by a unique Halloween-themed photograph. They are prompted to write the exposition of the tale by introducing the setting and main characters. After the allotted amount of time, the story is then passed to another student who is prompted to write the inciting incident or conflict and begin to detail the rising action. The paper is passed from student to student twice more until the story is resolved. When the stories are finished, the worksheet is returned to the original student who can then make edits and is responsible for producing a final draft.

With this intrinsically engaging activity, each student has the chance to tap into their creativity while applying knowledge of the 7 steps of Freytag's Pyramid. It is a great activity to introduce or reinforce the plot diagram and is IDEAL for Halloween as it is so fun for students, yet designed as a nice quiet activity, regardless of the sugar rush! Since the lesson runs itself, it is also great for a substitute or on those days when you need a quick plan to get you through the day. I trust you will find that your students will ask for this activity again and again!

Product Includes:

- 31 unique "Collaborative Story Time" worksheets with Halloween-themed photographs (2-sided)
- 1 blank worksheet so that you may include your own picture or photograph

Be aware that while every photograph is entirely school-appropriate, due to the scary nature of the pictures (ghosts, zombies, goblins) it is recommended for use for students in eighth grade and above. Make sure to examine all photographs prior to use in your classroom - you know what is best for your students.
