- Explain that the students are going to make an original monster and pass out worksheet.
- Show them an example quickly - animal traits, a strange appetite or multiple body parts can easily make a monster. Draw it on the board and write 3-4 sentences: "Butracula eats pork. He flies to school. He lives in Tokyo.
- Give the students 5-10 minutes to write five sentences. They can draw a picture AFTER they finish their sentences.
- Encourage higher level students to use like+infinitive, past tense, or relative clauses. But 1st year JHS are most likely to get excited about the activity.
- For slow starters, get them going with the prompts, "He eats..." "She lives..." "He doesn't like..."
- Use with worksheet Halloween Character Matching to give them some starter ideas.
- For small classes, have students present their monster.
- Some students will not get started at all. Even some of the smarter students won't like making an original character, so make this a supplement to the main lesson plan.
