(A spin-off of the "Monster Match" project)Students work as a group to create an actual scarecrow. They will then write a description of their scarecrow so the partner class can make it. After each class has made the described scarecrow, a video conference will be set up to share scarecrows and see which ones come closest to being the same. A short PPP of the respective cities and a 10 minute discussion between the students can be shared as they learn about others.
