Students read and watch a variety of video clips about well-known haunted places. I included the following on the haunted tour:
Eastern State Penitentiary
Waverly Hills Sanatorium
Amityville Horror House
This assignment allows students to summarize, write sentences using sensory words, recall events from a video, and give opinions based on evidence. After all sites have been visited, students must reflect on which was the most interesting or scariest and provide evidence to support their thoughts.
*I prepared 12 booklets for each place and placed them in a folder like in the picture for this idea.
* Each student received a stapled packet to fill out.
* Be sure to check all websites because I found the Waverly Hills Sanatorium was not accessible from our school website; therefore, you might need to have an alternate idea.
My students were extremely interested in this activity, and it was perfect around Halloween, but because this topic is so popular, it can be used year round.
