Grade 3 students know an awful lot about Monsters, Myths and Legends. I know my own daughter likes to quiz me on my knowledge of greek mythology and she lost me a long time ago! So it was not difficult to get them excited about inventing their own mythical beasts. They thought carefully, whilst planning, about the habitat, diet and special skills or powers their monster would have and how this would affect how the monsters would look. Wings, Fangs, scales, gills. The Monsters were build from paper and tape and what amazing forms they made. The students were inspired by The Monster Man and asked me to share the link on my blog. So here it is. If the kids want to make more creatures at home the website has helpful links to skills tutorials.
