PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Here is a fun lesson to integrate literacy and science, and also get students moving (excellent for the end of the year, Earth Day, or summer camp)!

First, students read and discuss a fairy tale, “Cat and Mouse in Partnership,” or other selected text. Next, they participate in a tag game which simulates the food chain; afterwards, they reflect on their learning and write in various modes, choosing from nine activities including dialogue poems, animal fiction stories, newspaper editorials, informational essays, play scripts, etc. Additionally, students progress through the writing process using 6+1 traits which focuses on ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, conventions, and presentation.

Students of many grade levels and abilities can enjoy the lesson. If needed, younger students can be paired with older students for the tag game. This can be used as an interdisciplinary lesson, summer school lesson, or an exciting summer camp activity. In fact, when I’m an instructor for camp, this lesson is a favorite with the Young Writers!

This bundle includes the following:
An explicit lesson plan with the English Language Arts Common Core Anchor Standards,
Grimm Brothers Fairy Tale Text,
Tag Game Instructions,
Life, Water & Vegetation Cards,
Six Animal and Vocabulary cards (for ELL and Special Needs Students),
Writing Menu Handout,
Peer Revision Handout,
Rubric, and
A student sample dialogue poem.
