This dragon writing project teaches pupils how to write non-chronological reports through the fantasy topic of dragons. It can be further applied to real dragons such as the Chinese water dragon and the Komodo dragon. The unit begins with a pre-written text to teach pupils how to develop their own writing. The second part of the unit focused on shared writing and mentored sentences. The last section leads to independent writing.
The unit can be run over a couple of weeks and is fully inline with the common core expectations for grade 6 and 7.
