Chapter Activity That Is a Trick and a Treat

This chapter activity (or class activity for that matter) was too good not to share. What looks like regular ground beef labeled as roadkill, including meat trays from the local grocery store and plastic rap, is actually rice krispie treats shaped like hamburger patties with some red food coloring to make them all too real.

Take a moment and look at the picture closely and then imagine the surprise of your students when you pull off this trick and treat for your students. They'll use this gag on everyone they know, but I doubt they'll share the gooey, crispy goodness inside.
