Monster Research

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Fifth grade students are working on a research unit about MONSTERS!

They must choose a legendary “monster” or mythological creature from a pre-selected list. ┬áThen fifth graders will use at least three reference sources of information.

Monster facts include:

  • Legend/Origin
  • Personality
  • Physical Description
  • Special Abilities
  • Habitat
  • Weaknesses
  • Strengths
  • Good or Bad Guy?
  • Enemies/Friends
  • Life Span (How old or when it lived.)
  • Descriptor Words
  • Character Traits
  • Where are they from? Book or story?
  • Food
  • Favorite Facts
