Frankenstein Compare and Contrast



If you follow me on Instagram (msleslieann01), then you saw my kids' adorable frankensteins.
This was the first step in our 2 day Frankenstein Compare and Contrast Project. The kids got into groups of 4 and made their own Frankensteins. We completed this on Thursday and by Friday, we were ready to compare and contrast!
Here's what we did. After each group created their Frankenstein, they teamed up with another group to compare the two Frankensteins, using a Venn diagram.


The final step was to write a summary detailing the similarities and differences between the two Frankensteins. They did such a great job on this step!


We need lots of practice writing, so this was the perfect project. Plus, the kids created absolutely everything! No prep needed. Simply, give out construction paper, let them create, give out a paper for the venn diagram, and then notebook paper for the summary. Easy squeezy!

Be sure and check out Southern Belle Inspired to see how fun Polyvore is!
