Elementary teachers Mrs. Sue Stone and Mrs. Erin Spotts, and secondary teachers Mrs. Casie Baker and Mrs. Lori Shively, created a cross-curricular "monster of a lesson" that provided their students with a meaningful learning experience. Each of the Third grade students in Mrs. Stone’s and Mrs. Spott’s class were tasked with creating a drawing of an imagined monster and giving their monster an original name. The students' two-dimensional drawings were then sculpted into three-dimensional form by Mrs. Baker’s Ceramics/Sculpture class. The Digital Design class, taught by Mrs. Shively, put the finishing touches to the project by designing a package to showcase each of the monsters. After completing their work, on Halloween Day, students from the two high school classes presented the monster toys to the excited Third Graders!  Click the photo to see a larger image.
