What is it? Your kids will really love using this website from the New York Zoo's and Aquarium group. They create a model of them self in a great looking storybook art style and then add some wild features such as scales, claws extra eyes and legs. They can then set them self in a wild setting and save the image to be used elsewhere.
How can I use this in the classroom? This is a great creative activity for young readers who are reading a text like 'Where the Wild things are' they can initially create a model of their wild self print it out and create a narrative or piece of writing based around that image. You may also find a use for this if you are exploring mythology, animals and what elements go into creating some famous monsters such as a minotaur. Have a go of build your wild self here.
