This is a writing prompt that correspondes to the story The Mixed Up Chameleon. After reading the book, brainstorm ideas with students different features of animals that would be great to have (example bird's wings to fly). This is a printable where students will first draw a picture of an animal of their choice with various features/characteristics of other animals. You can either have students draw their animals or use magazines to cut out pictures of animals. Then, students will write to explain their unique creature, what type of environment it lives in and why, foods it will eat, etc.
