|My students' monster|
We could have stopped our participation at making our own monster and voting on the others, but the beauty of Terry's Global Monster Project is becomes not website you go visit once or a project that stops once the students have voted, it is the jumping off point for so much more. Adding your class twitter account, blog, class e-mail and/or Skype account to the site is encouraged and teachers make use of it. Through this project my students visited other classroom blogs, getting a sense of how other classes blog, making comments on what they liked. They Skyped with two other classrooms learning while learning about asking good questions and comparing our city and school day to theirs. Finally our class gained a penpal class in England who we continue to keep in contact with. We will be sending our English penpals a care package later this year, including items based on what we learn about symbols of Canada.
