Why Lesson Planet?
Students read a story and create a new animal. In this lesson about creativity and imagination, students read the story, Porkenstein by Kathryn Lasky, where a new friend, Prokenstein, is created. Students use crayons and/or markers, collage paper, and glue, to make a new friend of their own. Students will determine what the animal looks like as well as what characteristics their new friend has.
