This is a great creative writing activity where students are creating a human hybrid. One person from their family and any other human being. Previously we completed the same activity but we combined two animals.
There is a QR code that links to a great adjective list to help students choose really creative and useful adjectives. Please note that I included student work from the animal activity. This work is by 6th graders and it is their first attempt. I have not corrected it so to show where they are making mistakes. Also, note that students tend to really focus on creative drawing process. I would give them a time limit to create their drawing/sketch and then the rest for writing.
They have a great response with this activity. The creative juices flow and they really extend their learning with words and expressions. This exercise can last an entire class and the students then finish at home what they do not finish in class.
I promise that if you complete, correct and then reflect at least three times you will see and great increase in writing ability.
