Describing wild animals can be fun, but kids can have more fun while describing strange animals. It's even better when it's a game.
All you need is a dice, crayons and a piece of paper.
Yesterday I divided my 3rd-graders into pairs. Each pair got one dice. Each student had to roll twice. They roll an animal on the first roll and a body part on the second roll. Then they drew what they'd rolled.
At first they didn't get it, as it was quite an unusual exercise. But then they created amazing animals and even described them in English.
