Monster Mash

Students used the computer program Tux Paint to create original monsters.  They then wrote a descriptive paragraph on Pages about their monsters.  Their task was to write the paragraph so that someone could visually see their monster.  Students in another school read the paragraphs and tried to draw the monster according to the description written.  The monster pictures were then compared.  This was a great way to emphasis the importance of writing accurate, descriptive writing.  The monsters and paragraphs are posted on this Wiki.
