Product Description
Perfect piece of creative writing for any occasion, especially Halloween. The students are asked to create an original monster and draw it to completion,adding color etc. Once they have completed their monster, they will describe it on paper. The purpose of this is to describe in ABSOLUTE DETAIL exactly what their monster looks like and how would one duplicate it on a page without looking at the drawing first. The more detailed description the students uses, the more successful the outcome will be when someone else is asked to duplicate their drawing without looking at it. Once the description is complete, the students will pass to their neighbor both their drawing(covered up with construction paper) and their description. The neighbor will read the description, following the step by step instructions and draw out their version of what the monster should look like. Once completed, the drawing is returned to the original owner, the construction paper is lifted, and they can see how successful they were at describing their monsters.

Included in this packet are several example drawings, some more successful than others, a blank page to create the drawing and a blank page to create the description. The book entitled "Go Away, Big Green Monster!" by Ed Emberley is a nice companion text to read before beginning the lesson.
