I started this writing unit in my classroom by reading the book "What If You Had Animal Hair” by Sandra Markle. Students then researched a feature of an animal on their own that they would like to have. They then wrote about the feature and explained how they would use it. After writing, I had students draw themselves with this feature in the writing template provided. They LOVED this!
This assignment was PERFECT for teaching my students to briefly research a topic and apply this to their writing. Students were engaged and creatively thinking during this writing unit!
