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?
