Writing is my absolute favourite subject to teach! I love to see what students can create with their writing. Writing provides so many insights! Check out these five fun ways to use writing in an under the sea unit!
Under the Sea Fact Book
Give students a blank notebook or create an under the sea fact book for the students. CLICK on the template to download an Under the Sea book for students to use. Students write down new facts they learn each day.
Under the Sea Animal Picture Book
Cut 8 1/2 x 11″ paper in half and staple 5 to 10 pages together. Give each student a blank booklet and have them draw a different under the sea animal on each page. Students can colour the animals. If appropriate, students can label the pictures and/or write sentences about the animals.
Put students into groups of two or three. Give each set of partners or triads a sheet of chart paper or large sheet of butcher paper. Students draw a giant T-chart on their pages. On the left side of the page, students brainstorm facts and information they have learned about under the sea. On the right side of the page, students make personal connections to the ideas and facts on the left side of the chart.
ABC Phrases or Sentences
Tell students to write a phrase or sentence for each letter of the alphabet. Discuss alliteration and see if students can use alliteration in the phrases and sentences they write.
Give students a piece of poster board and have them make a poster about an under the sea creature. Encourage students to draw pictures and write information on their posters.
