製作的過程裡，學生可以學習到如何形容物體，如：This is my big purple monster with two big brown eyes. / My monster has two big brown eyes.；進階班的學生可做比較級/最高級以及所有格代名詞練習，如：”My monster is bigger than yours. Sidney’s monster is the biggest of all.”；同時，也可以觀察棉花糖加熱後的變化 “The microwave makes the water molecules vibrate very quickly—which makes the water heat up. The hot water warms the sugar, which softens a little. The hot water also warms the air bubbles.” 並結合關係子句的練習，如：The marshmallow is soft. But the marshmallow which had been heated in the microwave became gooey.
At first, it expands, because it is full of air, and the air expands But it is porous, so the air eventually escapes, and then the marshmallow just melts and gets all gooey because sugar has a very low melting point. Also, marshmallows have gelatin, which also melts easily.
