This is a literacy unit with a visual arts component. Whenever I have implemented this resource in the classroom, I have found my students highly motivated to participate in the lessons. When students are motivated, they can make more meaningful and personal connections to their learning and sustain on-task behaviors. My students regularly enjoyed sharing their work with their peers and couldn't wait to see the final illustration at the end of the lesson. Which also means they are having fun learning!
This resource includes:
Ten crazy creature descriptions
Ten original hand-drawn illustrations to match descriptions
A reading lesson plan
A writing lesson plan
Crazy creature planning sheet
