Mark Twain Camp Haunted?!

The grade 7 ELA students have been researching the Mark Twain Camp, and it seems as if it's one of the few landmarks related to the author that isn't haunted (see here and here).
The Mark Twain camp in Saranac Lake shouldn't be left out when it comes to spookiness. Therefore, after doing some research, the students will work on the following assignment:

Write a short piece of creative fiction in which you tell a story about the haunted Mark Twain Camp on Lower Saranac Lake. In your story (2 pages, handwritten neatly or typed) be sure to include the following:

  • a clear beginning, middle and end

  • details from your research

  • dialogue

You may want to, for example, tell the story of a family who rents the camp, and discovers it to be haunted. Or, perhaps you'll tell the story of a paranormal investigation team that comes to investigate the camp.
