Halloween and the Common Core!

In the spirit of Halloween, students researched a "legendary creature" and wrote a report in an online presentation format of their choice (PreziThingLinkMovieMakerWeebly website, etc.).  Students were challenged to explain and include citations for these 5 categories:  Description/Symbolism of creature, Origins, Comparison to other legendary creatures, Connections to the culture/country from which it came, and Modern Use of that creature today.  Then, students shared their creature reports online through Edmodo and read at least 5 other students' reports.  From each creature report, they gleaned one creature feature to create their own "supercreature," which they explained the "discovery" of in an informative news article.  Enjoy the creepy and creative creature presentations below (click on images)!
