Relaxing at the Hotel Transylvania!

So, Halloween is just around the corner and because of that, I have a Halloween themed question this week!

Watch the following trailer to the movie "Hotel Transylvania" and then answer the following questions:

1.  What is your favourite spooky story?
2.  Can you imagine the main scary character at the Hotel Transylvania?  What would he/she/it look like?  What would his/her/its room look like?
3.  How would they relax?
4.  What do you think he/she/it would do if they saw a human at the hotel?

Once you have posted your response, read the responses posted by your peers and reply thoughtfully to at least two other students.  Compliment strong points, make connections, ask questions and build on ideas shared!

Famous Person

Hello my trusty grade 7's!

Welcome to your second blog response!

Just a few quick reminders:

1.  Only 12 of you responded last week.  Make sure if you haven't responded, you do today.
2.  Don't forget to respond back to at least two of your peers.
3.  Don't forget to use your school username.  Otherwise, I won't know who you are.

Thank-you and good luck on this week's question!

If you could meet one famous person, dead or alive, who would it be and why? State the person's name, his/her occupation (i.e. politician, comedian, musician, author, etc.), explain why you want to meet this person and list 3 questions you would like to ask him/her.

Once you have posted your response to this question, respond to at least 2 of your peers. You can ask them about why they chose to meet this particular person, share thoughts and stories, add questions to their list of things to ask, etc.

To get you started, I have included a picture of one person I would love to meet.  Bonus mark for the first person to tell me who he is!  :-)
