Product Description
This unsolved mystery will make a great story to read in October, just as the days get cooler and mystery seeps into the night. Use the multi-user license to create a Halloween unit for your middle school department. The Deserted Lighthouse is the tale of 5 friends who decide to spend the week-end in a deserted lighthouse, only to discover that it isn't so deserted. Mysterious characters they meet on their way add to the suspect list. Set in Ireland with authentic names. Students can write their own ending to this mystery.
A teacher-friendly unit including handouts, additional lesson ideas, non-fiction passages and printables Just what you need in a busy classroom to get the maximum use out of the resource. Included are: printables, answer keys (for pages with definitive answers- not writing pages), four non-fiction passages with questions and answer keys, additional lessons for enrichment; and helpful live links. This 74 page resource is great for this time of year!
