A fun writing project for your students. They complete the project as if they were ichthyologists who just discovered a new species of fish! There are five components to the project:
1. Field Notes Sheet
2. Informational Report
3. Personal Narrative
4. Newspaper Article
5. Business Letter
There are directions for each one as well as sheets students can use for their writing.
As an optional activity, students can make a beanbag fish of their new species using felt and craft materials.
This is a great way to get a lot of writing in on one topic! There are 18 total pages!
