Creepy body parts

Here is a poem I found that I do in my classroom for Halloween time! Great sensory game!

Once upon a Halloween night
Living in this spooky town
Was a man who died of fright
Bearing the name of Brown.

Many and many a year has passed
Since they buried Brown away,
But his withering corpse we’ve here amassed
Dug up from his tomb today!

Here is his brain, which feels no pain.

Pass around a cup with something like a wet squishy tomato inside it.

Here are his eyes, frozen in surprise.

Pass the second cup which hold two frozen peeled grapes.

Here is his heart, nevermore to start!

Pass around a cup with a large lump of uncooked liver.

Here is his hair, once so fair!

This cup contains a handful of corn silk or wet fur or yarn.

A few drops of blood, the rest turned to mud!

A cup with a little catsup thinned with warm water.

One hand all alone, rotting flesh and bone.

A damp plastic glove filled with mud or ice.

Now touch his ear, which does not hear!

Pass around a cup holding a dried apricot

And here is his nose, cold in his repose.

Use a soft piece of chicken bone.

All that’s left of his skin are these worms within!

Pass around a cup filled with wet, cooked spaghetti noodles. IMG_4567

Poor Brown is dead and withered away,
Can you guess what we really felt today?
