Fourth Graders Make Monsters | VideoKristin Clouston | 10/31/2012
The pressure was on at Saxvik Elementary because fourth graders only had 30 minutes to construct their monsters. Teams knew in order to win, they needed to work together.
Alex Wilson declared, "One rule, that you cannot get into an argument."
They had to follow a plan.
"We were supposed to draw it out before we started creating it," explained Mayola Lee.
Before they knew it, the fourth graders were out of time.
Their teacher Mr.Kitzman shouted, "Stop where you`re at!"
You could here shouts of frustration. "Come on!"
"Well, at least he stands," said Wilson.
"Yeah," agreed his partner Shane Brunnelle.
The monsters were made of junk most of us would throw away or recycle.
Ashley Goetzfride explained, "Mrs. Mastel, the kindergarten teacher, she had a chair, but it broke, so she said we could borrow it."
"Do you think she`ll really want it back?"
"Probably not. It didn`t look like it would go back together."
In the end, the projects were judged by their peers, because no one was allowed to vote for themselves. Students won prizes for the most creative, scariest, smallest and largest monsters.
