Here's a fun Halloween activity that we can do online. Grab a partner and some colouring utensils. Let's draw!

1) Draw a monster. Use as much detail as you can! 


2) Pick an online partner from MyEC.


3) Record (or write) instructions about how to draw your monster/alien, and send it to your partner. Don't show your picture to your partner (yet!). You can also give instructions via the chat room or Skype/Facetime. Describe your picture to your partner. Be specific!


4) Take a photograph of your picture and upload the image of your original monster to the MyEC Photo Gallery. (Call it "My Monster".)


5) Invite your partner to upload his/her version to the MyEC Photo Gallery. (They should name the image after the original artist: eg. "Y.N.'s Monster")


6) Compare and contrast the original image to the "knockoff" by commenting on each other’s images.

*Add a link to the knockoff image so that all members can see both!

Who wants to be my partner?

Try comparing Shabeen's monster to my son's original

Then challenge a partner to try this activity with you! Let's fill the MyEC Photo Gallery up with monster drawings this October!
