[Ndca-l] Space Lesson Plans: Update on Create-Your-Own-Alien Day
Fri May 13 12:28:26 EDT 2011
An update on the Create-Your-Own-Alien Day lesson plan - a few of you have backchanneled me for the supplies that I provided as well as some other details. I did have each student name their alien and write a short 3-5 sentence biography of his/her creature.
Here is the list of supplies out in two categories - what I purchased from a craft store and "junk" I had lying around.
Glitter Glue Pens
Junk Tate had lying around (a lot from Glenbrooks concessions):
Paper Cups (this was huge...a lot of students used the cups as the body of the alien)
Yellow caution tape
Stapler (this was used a lot since glue sticks did not really adhere the materials)
Fake money (we had a few aliens represent the Planet of Capitalism)
We had a fun day! They turned out great and the kids loved the "break". However, it is days like these that may explain why US students are behind the Japanese students. :)
