Students drew their Lima Bean monster on paper, traced it with black marker in the photos below. Next they will try to paint with color balance neatly and completely.
Students were inspired by the story, Lima Bean Monster by Dan Yaccarino.
We also enjoyed the song, Veggie Rock Song Fizzy's Lunch Lab on PBSkids.
We used the handouts in our Lima Bean Monster Packet to get ideas for Eyes, Noses, Mouths, expressive eyebrows, and teeth. Students each made their own choices and drew as big and expressively as possible. I also printed out these examples for each student.

First graders are posing with their favorite vegetable in front of green screen so they can become the body of their lima bean monster. These photos will be combined with their artwork to help make an EAT YOUR VEGGIES poster.
EAT YOUR VEGGIES POSTERS
First graders had their first iPad creation experience this year by combining their lima bean monster (with body) and a background with text. They downloaded the files from dropbox, imported them into the superimpose app, resized and placed their figure, added a drop shadow, saved, uploaded the finished graphic design to the correct folder in dropbox and renamed it. (whew!)
