Jaworek students create “international” monster

Marlborough – Maureen Gibbons” third-grade class at Jaworek Elementary School recently participated in a worldwide project to create a “friendly” monster.

Classrooms around the globe designed and built a monster using collaboration, critical thinking and problem-solving skills to create and describe by specific color, shape and size their monsters, then shared the information with other schools via the Internet and e-mail.

Additionally, the students created literature about their classroom monsters through stories, recipes, biographies and poems. They solved monster math problems as they built their individual “monster body parts” so they would fit with parts created by other students.

The result: A very large but very friendly monster with one tail, two wings, four legs and 80 toenails. The completed monster has taken up residence in the Jaworek library.
