Halloween decorations - outside the classroom door. What fun. I had two really unpredictable students in my ED class. Gave them a bunch of materials, not much in the way of directions and a little time. Had the hands down best display ever. Autonomy rocks. I can see giving students a picture, some old clothes and shoes and seeing what they come up with.

"I bet you're all wondering why I've gathered you here today. The task is simple. Once you step off this elevator you will be handed an envelope, in that envelope is a key and a sheet of paper. That key is to a locker, in that locker is fifteen-thousand dollars. The sheet of paper will contain clues to help lead you along your way. The first one to the locker gets the money. Good luck and god-speed, we'll be watching." Then you immediately get off, never to be seen from again.
