Alien lunch boxes

On day 1 of my writing camp at CBIS in Seoul, Korea, I decided to riff of my recent “Galaxy Camp” in Canada and make Aliens the theme of the day.

We started by taking my “What type of alien are you?” quiz. Afterwards, we worked on a project to imagine some evidence that was discovered at an alien crash site. After drawing some of this evidence, the students wrote a short story in the format of a newspaper article or a diary entry.

Then came the real fun part—alien lunchboxes! The students got to imagine and design their own alien menu and accompanying take out box. This really gives them an opportunity to gross it up. You’d think it would just be the boys who had the fun with this . . . but I’ve found it’s a universal truth that girls can be just as gross in their creations!
