There are many different opportunities to integrate writing into a dinosaur unit! Create What Am I? Riddles, a Dinosaur Diary, or a Dinosaur Fact Book and encourage students to use their knowledge of dinosaurs in their writing.
Writing is my favourite subject to teach! When you combine writing with a dinosaur unit, you have engaging activities that will appeal to students.
Dinosaur What Am I? Riddles
Have your students write “What Am I?” riddles about different dinosaurs. Students write two to five facts about the dinosaur and end with the question, “What Am I?”
Students chose a dinosaur and then keep a diary throughout the dinosaur unit. Students write diary entries from the perspective of their chosen dinosaur. CLICK on the image to download a dinosaur diary template:
