PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you having a hard time motivating your students to WRITE? Then this product is for YOU. I'm not sure who liked this activity more when I was a classroom teacher...my students or ME :)

All you need to do is purchase the Magic Grow capsules ($1.00 for 12) at a local store: Michaels, Wal-Mart, Target, etc.. I see them everywhere! You also might want to get some plastic baggies too. This small pack has everything else you need.

This makes for an adorable bulletin board!

What is included:

1. Purpose Page: This writing activity is intended to get your students excited to write while brainstorming over night.
2. Note to the Teacher Page
3. Small note to go in plastic bags that go home with students explaining what to do with the capsule
4. Brainstorming page
5. Three different types of writing stationery for differentiation. Students glue their sponge animal (that comes out of the capsule) in the gray box in the upper left hand corner.

Your students will take home one capsule that they will put in warm/hot water. The capsule will turn into an animal (or whatever Magic Grow Capsules you purchase...Safari animals, Ocean Animals, Transportation, etc.) That night they have to start brainstorming a story they can write in school the next day that involves that animal as one of the main characters.

Alternative: Instead of creative writing, you could use this as an anticipatory set to kick off a research project. The students would have to conduct research on the animal that comes out of their capsule.
