Use this mini book as students observe a growing seed. Instruct students to write from the perspective of the seed as they observe it each day. Remind them to think about what the seed would be feeling and thinking as it grows. They can add illustrations to their writing, too.
Diary of a Worm or Diary of a Fly work nicely as a mentor text introduction to this project.
This activity will get students using observation skills and thinking creatively!
