Monster Match 2018

This a free video conference collaboration between classrooms in K, 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade!  Two classrooms will be paired and each class will create a monster using materials from the materials list. The class will then write a description of their monster and send the description to their partner class via email.  Each class will recreate their partner class’s monster based only the written description.  The classes will then connect via a videoconference to compare their recreated monsters with the original monster sharing similarities and differences, as well as how the monster descriptions were written and interpreted.  Read and/or print the document attached for more details.  Registration link is below and on the document attached.
