This craft ties into the "Aliens Love Underpants" book. My students created their alien and then used construction paper scraps to make underwear for their aliens. We wrote in our journals about what we would do if aliens came to our house
I use this activity sheet on my star of the week board and they fill it out on during "their week", but it can be used in the first month of school to get to know your students. The kids write or draw their interests and likes.
