PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Project Based Learning Activity: Monster Squad .

This project integrates elements of collaboration, design, and planning as students create their own Monster Squad. Students will use their imagination and skills to solve problems when their town is overrun with monsters. It includes assembling a team, planning for an invasion, investigating situations, writing prompts, comic book design, building a diorama, and other scary-fun activities.

There are over 20 activities (most are 1 page each) for students to complete. Each page involves an issue or topic they must solve, design, create, or research.

All pages can be geared towards multiple grade levels, although for some younger students the teacher may need to give more explicit instructions.

Students may choose to use multiple resources to complete each page. They might even choose to work with a partner, but you get final say on that.
