Monster Unit for Kindergarten

Each year I teach a monster unit plan to my Kindergarteners. It’s a great way to explore a lot of different media under the guise of fun monster projects.

Cityscape with Monster Collage

Read “Monster’s Don’t Eat Broccoli”

I set up a hot glue gun station at one of my back counters…once the kids had at least 2 layers of paper/colors for their eyes then they could come visit me for feathers and googly eyes. They did a really good job following directions and having fun creating.
