Product Description

 

This activity taps into students’ natural love for scary stories while helping them develop critical writing skills.  Using the guided Pre-Write in this resource, students will note their story elements, develop characters, establish a setting, outline a plot, and brainstorm sensory descriptions to amp up the fear factor in their writing. Then, students will let their creativity guide them as they write their own spooky stories complete with a creepy setting, scary characters, and a twist or surprise at the end.   The hardest part of this lesson is deciding who can share their story first.  Your students will be jumping out of their seats to share their writing (and spook) their peers.

 

Just imagine the fun your students will have writing a scary story around the story elements they randomly roll.  Think of how they could craft a story after rolling these elements:

-  Setting - An old, abandoned house

-  Character - A mad scientist

-  Obstacle - The main character has to save someone.

-  Story Starter - The night was black all around me.
