PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I love to give my students writing tasks using RAFT and I are sure you will, too! It gives students an authentic reason to write and makes it more fun. Many of my students who were reluctant to write actually began to enjoy it because they were able to take on different roles for different purposes using a variety of formats.

This RAFT writing task has students researching a chosen animal and then taking on the role of a zoo keeper or aquarist to write a comic strip to give informational about his/her animal to visitors. I have my students complete this task during our habitats unit.


This writing task addresses the Common Core ELA standards of informational writing and can be used in grades 1-5. In Kindergarten it can be completed as a shared writing activity.
