Pay the Ghost - Modals for Speculation

This is a scary movie and this scene is perfect to speculate about what happened to the little boy. Use it with adults only, please,

Review - Modals for Speculation:
Use CAN'T - for something that is practically impossible. 
Ex: It can't have rained. The streets are dry!
MIGHT - for something that is possible, but you are not absolutely sure. 
Ex: He might have slept over. He is not in class today.

MUST - for something that you believe is the most plausible explanation for a situation. 

Ex: She must have moved from that house. It is all dirty, the plants are huge, and it looks abandoned. 

IWork in small groups and think about three possibilities that would explain what happened to the boy: 

* CAN'T ________________________________________________________ 

* MIGHT _______________________________________________________ 

* MUST ________________________________________________________ 

II. Share your sentences with the class. Who came up with the most plausible explanations?
