Halloween Night In The News

It’s Halloween Night and you have to report upon the happenings of the evening in your local newspaper. This activity utilizes the IntelliTools Classroom Suite® “Science in the News” template but with all-new resources. We have provided you with two background pictures, a 1850s graveyard and a dilapidated house to use. Then we have provided a series of appropriate clip art including, bats, dracula, witches, ghosts, a skeleton, a werewolf and frankenstein to create your initial scene.

Your kids can of course animate their story and then take a photo of their creation as an automatic insert into the newspaper. They then can title the article, provide their name as a reporter and write about the happenings on Halloween night.

Please note that the clip art utilized in this activity is from the Nova Development Art Explosion Collection of over 800,000 images. Re-use of these images is prohibited unless you own a copy of the aforementioned collection. The photographs are copyright Learning Magic, Inc.

Applications needed: IntelliTools Classroom Suite®, IntelliTools Classroom Suite Player®, or IntelliPics Studio 3®.
Curriculum area: Language Arts, Holidays.
Level: Grades 3-5.
