How to build a monster
These craft activities are very simple and you only need a few things to complete them. You will need colored pencils or crayons, scissors, glue or sticky tape, and a blank sheet of paper or card.
Firstly, give each student a build a monster worksheet and ask them to color it in. Use can set instructions on how to color if you are teaching colors or body parts. Otherwise, you can just let your class use whatever colors they like.
Next, hand out pairs of scissors so that students can cut out the body parts that they want to use to make their monsters. If some students have different worksheets you can also let them exchange the parts they don’t want with each other.
Now give each student a blank piece of paper/card and get them to assemble the monsters.
Finally, you can ask students to write physical descriptions about the monsters, give them names, and write about where they live, what they eat and so on. Once completed students can also present their monsters to the class and talk about them.
