I give this assignment to students after we have covered body parts and colours in French.
It tests them on their comprehension of the vocabulary learned and it gives them a chance to be creative. There are 19 instruction that tell them what the monster they have to draw looks like. For example:
il a des mains rouges...il a trois dents...il a des pieds bruns...etc.
Students love this activity because although the instructions are the same, each one of them draws the monster the way they see it. Some draw it with long arms, some draw it with eyes stuck to antennas and so on.
I then display their work and we vote on the scariest and funniest looking monsters. Of course they use their French when voting too. For example, they have to say " J'aime le monstre de Julie parce que c'est le plus effrayant".
It's reading comprehension, vocabulary practice and art all in one. I use it as a cumulative assignment to easily test them on their knowledge.
