Evidence of aliens . . .

On day 1 of the CWC Galaxy Camp the focus was on alien life forms. We started by taking my quiz: What Type of Alien Are You? This inspired many of my students to modify their name placards:

So now I’m dealing with a room of Chewbaccas, Stiches, E.T.s and the like!

After this opening ice breaker, each student imagined an alien visitation by writing a story in either the form of a journal entry or a newspaper article. One of the key components of this project was to draw the evidence of the aliens. You can check out a bit of their work (in varying degrees of progress):

  1. The work you are doing with youth is inspiring!
    I am sure that the youth you have touched with your ideas and “hands on approach” to writing and drawing, will create many a budding author!
