This is big collection of no-prep, single page writing crafts that are a favorite activity in my classroom!

The art projects have been carefully designed for students to color, cut out, and assemble to make a picture of an animal. Then students write about their animal using one of 11 differentiated templates.

Because students can complete the art and writing independently, this is a great choice for the writing center. They all turn out a bit different with tons of personality and its great fine motor practice.

Keep these independent activities handy in a binder for weekly animal projects, early finishers, inside days, sub tubs, or literacy centers.

To ensure that all students are both supported and challenged, the animal template comes in 11 different versions, each with a different writing template embedded on the bottom. This means that students of all abilities can work on the same project at a level that is just right!

How To Make These Crafty Writing Projects:

  1. Color the animal picture elements and cut out the pieces.
  2. Use problem solving skills to decide how the animal pieces fit together. (You can show the completed cover picture for a hint if needed.)
  3. Glue the animal pieces together onto colorful paper.
  4. Glue the writing template box below the art. (see picture)
  5. Complete the writing template. There are several differentiated versions to choose from, including blank, so all students can feel successful!


Some of the templates are described below, or you can see them in the preview.

  • "I made a _______. It has _____.
  • "I made a _______. It is ______ and ______. I would name it _______. I wonder ____.
  • I made a ______. Here's how I made it: First ______. Then_____. Finally____.
  • ______are______. ______can_______. ______have______.
  • This is a ______ named_______. It likes to _______ (room for drawing)
  • Labeling part of the animal
  • Blank lines (4) for open ended writing or research
  • An acrostic poem based on the letters in the animal's name
  • Interlined lines (4) for open ended writing or research

Teaching Tip: To keep more advanced writers challenged, use the art as a cover and create a small booklet of lined paper to write longer passages - either non-fiction animal facts or a story about the animal.
