Monster Exchange: Great Project Idea...

Monster Exchange is a multidisciplinary, collaborative project that offers high motivtion and authentic, Project-Based Learning that involves both Visual Art and Language Arts. The core activity involves creating a monster and drawing it. Next, students send a narrative description of their monster off to a partner school, where another students will "Re-draw" it from the description. Finally, both versions are scanned and uploaded to the web to be displayed side by side, virtually. A very rich, VERY  21st Centry project... This is good stuff!
