Free Halloween Limerick Activity!

I thought I would share this activity that I always had my students do on Halloween day.  A Halloween Limerick Activity!  This activity, perfect for grades 5 and up, has students writing their own epigraph in limerick form, then putting it on their own tombstone.  It is a great way for the kids to have fun while learning a new poetic style!
