Venn Creature

Kids mash two creatures together to create a new animal! After they create (draw or photoshop) their creature, have them name it and describe its special characteristics. Where does the creature live? Have kids describe its habitat. What does it eat? What eats it?! How is it adapted to its environment? 

You could also have kids construct their creature using model magic, once they finalize their sketch on their Venn diagram.

If kids need a little inspiration, have them check out Build Your Wild Self (click here for an example)!

  2. Venn diagrams are most used in set theory, but they can be used to compare and contrast and many other creative ways. Below are some editable Venn diagram templates /examples available in diagramming community. You can customize them using Creately Venn diagram software and download them as images, SVG files or PDF files.
