Students also recreated specific scenes from the book including a ‘ghoul gate’ scene, pictured below. They also tried to imagine where certain events could have taken place from ‘The Graveyard Book’.
The last part of the trip was spent reading a few passages from the text while in the cemetery. Students agreed that reading in the cemetery made the text feel ‘more real than ever’.
This was a perfect adventure for our novel, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect with the upcoming Halloween holiday!
