This morning I’m taking my daughters to a little petting zoo near our home. They love to pet the goats, sheep, ponies, horses, and bunnies. Both of my daughters love learning about animals and they are both learning to write right now. Thinking about those things reminded me of a writing template hosted by Read Write Think.
Read Write Think’s Animal Inquiry template is an online graphic organizer template that students fill in as they learn about animals and or fill in from memory. It’s a simple template that doesn’t require students to sign-up or sign into any kind of account which makes it perfect for elementary school use. On the same page that you find the template you will also find some suggested lesson plans that you can access for free.
Back in January Read Write Think relaunched all of their popular interactive writing templates and activities for students. Here’s a list of some of my favorite RWT templates.
