I was browsing through a seventh grade textbook in the Media Center - I found a good scarrrrrryyyy storrrrry..... with rats.
Ok - I frighten easily - especially of rodents - for instance.
out so much!!!
I think it would be a great story to use for Predictions, Cause and Effect, and Foreshadowing - if by chance you need students to study for the MCAs - You can get the story for free here This is a great story for KWL reading strategy
Also, Vincent Price narrates the creepy story in this youtube video -
If you don't have youtube available in your school - you can download it on Amazon.com.
It's audible not a visual presentation like the youtube video.
Wouldn't it present a great history lesson on old time radio beside the usual "The Monsters are Due on Maple Street" ?
The textbook linked the story to some information on the bubonic plague - which of course, is always some light-hearted reading -
