D is for Distance Learning

The Monster Exchange is a program where students from around the world come together to share reading comprehension, descriptive writing and art.
Students from a classroom work in groups to design a picture of a monster and then create a description of the monster.
The students then swap the descriptions via email to a partnered class (in a different school somewhere) and each class re-creates the monsters using the only descriptions provided by the original artists.

There are some lesson plans, chat rooms and a discussion board available for educators to utilize.


  • How cool is that! Maybe you can work it into your Literature Circle extension project.
