First I introduced my students to Jim Henson and we learned about his amazing art style of designing and bringing muppets to life.
We watched this clip of rapper Will.i.am. singing with the Sesame Street muppets and used the closed caption so the students can read along with it as always.
I had students make observations of the different characteristics of each muppet. (Colors, shapes, lines going horizontal or vertical, etc.) Then we looked at Pastrano's work. VERY COOL.
My kinders and 1st graders did paper collages with cookie monster, ernie, elmo & kermit
Two of my classes did the Minon's from Despicable Me 2 for our skit in the Benchmark Pep Rally to go along with our song Because I'm Happy!
