Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2: Describing People's Physical Characteristics


The first movie was so good that it makes this sequel almost unnecessary. Anyways, it has its good moments. The idea of foodimals is just great and perfect for classes in which the students have to work on people physical characteristics.
















A. Write down the characteristics we use to describe people under the correct verb column. To Have or To Be.


HAIR

EYES

FAT

THIN

SHORT

TALL

CHUBBY

SLIM

ARMS

LEGS

HEAVY

MEDIUM-BUILT




B. Watch the movie segment and then describe the  ‘foodimals’ (aka food animals) and characters below, using the words in exercise A. Make sure you say, for example, how many eyes, legs, arms they have and their colors too.

Ex: It is a spider-hamburger. It has eight legs, etc

2.  Barbs, the simio



3. Double Bacon CheesSpider




4. Flint Lockwood



5. Earl



Hippotatamos

HippotatomusFA





 Sam Sparks




Straw-Barry


Taco-dile Supreme


Bananostrich

C. Draw ‘foodimal’ (aka food animal) or monster. Be creative. Don't show it to anyone. Give it a name too.

Ex: Mosquitoast

It is thin. It has six legs  and two toast (toasted) wings. It has two big black eyes and two short antennas.

D. Describe your drawing to a partner, but do not show it to him/her. Your partner draws what he/she listens.
