This activity is so much fun for Halloween in History class!
I use this when I teach Utah History. I usually find around 10 scary stories and I make copies of them. I put them in piles throughout my room and I let students pick which ones they want to read. I normally require 4 and then allow them to do extra if they have time for them for extra points. Students complete the Double Entry Journal Worksheet and fill in the rows according to the instructions for each story that they've read.
It would be so much fun to do a 'Haunted World' for World History or 'Haunted America' for US History. I included worksheets with some different titles including: 'Haunted History,' 'Haunted World,' 'Haunted Earth,' and 'Haunted America.' If you have a request for a title, please send me a message or an email and I can customize a worksheet for you or send you the editable file.
