Monster Mash

Great idea I heard from Dr. Rios from the Fort Sam Houston school district this morning -

Have students create a monster in their Makerspace using paper, cups, etc. Then they need to use a Google Doc to write explicit instructions on how to put it together. They should rewrite it until it is accurate.  Then share an extra set of the same materials with another school/class and those students must use the instructions to create the same monster.  Once they are finished the teacher can hold a Google Hangout for the two classes to compare monsters so the students can see how close the other groups came to re-creating their monster.

Great way to move up the SAMR ladder! We just involved technology and collaboration to an authentic writing activity.
