Creative Writing

The creative writing primarily focuses on the use of Switch Zoo, a site that will generate interesting creatures. Once the students create their animal, they can write a news story, create a web page about the creature, or record a report about their animal and more. In addition to the activities that can be generated from Switch Zoo, students will have several other opportunities to improve their writing skills by completing lessons in the language section of the book which focuses on visual literacy, the use of imagery to communicate. Check out the Visual Literacy link for more details.
The creative.pdf attachment below will give you a general idea about the handout for students.
Switch Zoo: this site is packed with wonderful activities and opportunities for classroom projects.
