Have the students complete the My Monster handout. Cut the details away from the drawing and distribute the details to a different student. Have the second student attempt to draw the monster on the Their Monster handout using only the details. Return the original drawing, the details, and the new monster to the correct student. Have them compare my monster to their monster and reflect using the questions at the bottom of the their monster handout.
Great activity for teaching the importance of details in writing. "Show don't tell."
