For a fun Halloween activity, challenge students to create a story using Halloween themed emojis! This task is based off of a Google for Education Applied Digital Skills lesson plan. To help get you started I created a Google Doc Template you can easily assign to students in Google Classroom or have them make their own copies of. To view this template visit https://cowen.fyi/halloweenemoji. this template includes instructions, hints on how to copy paste, and emojis to get students started. Within the template you will also find a link to https://cowen.fyi/halloween21. This Google Doc contains all the Halloween themed emojis in a view only format, just in case someone accidently deletes their emojis 😱
Just in time for Halloween, we have a Google Halloween Special. Check out the ThingLink below to find five Halloween themed templates that challenge students to use Google Drawing, Docs, Slides, and even Sheets!
