Based on conversations with Giacomo about the Loch Ness Monster, and Audrey's interest in monsters (thanks to Sarah for sharing this), we came together on Wednesday to think about what we know about different creatures/monsters. The children were invited to bring any favorite images of monsters or books they have that include creatures/monsters.
“A monster is something that scares people and tricks the animals.” - Saul
What else do we know about them?
“All of the monsters live in the trucks, and the people lift them up.” - Saul
What kind of food to you think he [the manticore] would eat?
“Grass?” - Audrey
“Goats?” - Tegan
“He would eat his tail.” - Saul
“It might eat clouds? Clouds?” - Audrey
How would he get alll the way up into the sky to get the clouds?
“He can go up in the sky in an airplane.” - Saul
“I have another way. He could go up in the sky in a boat.” - Saul
“Or he could eat leaves from a tree.” - Audrey
“He could fly to get to the sky.” - Tegan
If only the Manticore had wings like this guy [the Roe]. Or, he could use an airplane like Saul said.
How do monsters move?
