The ALPs Enrichment K-8 teachers teamed up with all classes, Grades 3-5, to participate in the Global Monster Project. Descriptions of each part of the monster (52 parts in all) are created by each participating classroom and encompass students from around the world. Additionally, students were asked to state how their monsters would use STEM to make the school, town or world a better place. Students discovered that designing and building a monster together is a challenging task, with each student pair having made one or two parts of the monster, but then having to collaborate with other students to put the entire monster together. We are building 5 monsters total (2-5th, 2-4th and 1-3rd). One monster will be entered in the Global Monster Project contest. For more information, visit http://www.smithclass.org/proj/Monsters/.
