This resource includes a complete lesson plan for a science writing workshop.
Students will follow a detailed writing process to generate their own essays on animal adaptations and survival. I have polished this process over a number of years and the students are able to produce a really nice piece of science writing in a very manageable period of time.
The package includes the lesson plan, interactive notebook set-up, a sample paper, and a scoring rubric for the paper. Detailed ideas and notes are typed in the "Notes" section of each slide of the PowerPoint that is included.
