This product is designed to help ESL students develop their writing skills using pictures of animals and tree maps. It can be used as a center activity or as a class lesson activity. There are enough materials to last for several days.
This packet covers the following 10 animals:
For each animal, you get 1 photo poster with labels and 1 photo poster without labels.
In addition, you get three levels of tree maps with branches that have verbs to help the students describe the animals.
(Example, Bears can/have/are)
Verbs included: can, have, are, live, eat, move by
Level 1: Students write 1 word for each branch and then write 3 simple sentences.
Level 2: Students write 2 words for each branch and then write 3 sentences with compound predicates.
Level 3: Students write 3 words for each branch and write 3 sentences using a list of three items with commas.
In addition, there is one blank tree map for each level if you would like to write in your own verbs.
