Cupboards open and shut by themselves. Could it just be the wind? Or is it a ghost? A man dressed in clothing from the Revolutionary War is seen wandering an old fort. Is it a prank, or a lost soul? Explore spooky unanswered questions like these and many others, in Hauntings, part of Full Tilt’s Origins: Urban Legends series. The origin of exorcisms is examined, and eyewitness accounts are discussed. Readers will also learn about Jerome, Arizona, where an entire town has been haunted for many years by the same ghost. Through spooky stories, fun facts, and new vocabulary words, students can decide how many of these sightings are real, and how many are the results of overactive imaginations.
