Product Description

A fun and engaging writing activity to use as a stand-alone, to include in your poetry unit, or to include in an integrated ELA and Science unit!

Students review haiku formatting, read five original haiku poems about zoo animals, then write their own haiku about their favorite zoo animal. Perfect to integrate after a field trip to the zoo, mini-research projects, or a virtual field trip!
