I really LOVE the literature tie-in using Photoshop. This is such a cute lesson, I may have to use it with my 4th and 5th graders! I love the idea of inviting the ghosts in, and adding in the saxophone and clarinet. I also like that they have to use a digital camera to take pictures of areas where they saw the ghosts.

I would have liked to have seen the PD session plan for this, as that is what our assignment was, otherwise I would have given it a rating of 5.
