|Description||VET students (Fashion design) are learning about image development producing Halloween costumes.|
|Steps||1. Before the task prepare all the needed equipment and materials.|
2. Ask students to use all available materials and equipment to create the Halloween costume as their individual image.
3. Explain the next step of the task to students: Instead of just wearing costumes at school, the whole class should write a play together in which each of their character’s “Halloween costume image” is included in the storyline. (*For instance, they have to come up with how a giant Mickey mouse and the x-man will interact.)
