Children will find this book a lot of fun to write! After researching information about animal life, students will then formulate the questions that they would ask animals in an interview. They can then pretend to interview animals about the foods they eat, the ways they move and hide, and the challenges they face to survive. This book teaches interviewing techniques and how to ask questions using the words why, when, where, what, who, and how. Children will be inspired to write creatively and use their imaginations in new ways.
Writing this how-to book will not only motivate children to live healthier, happier lives but will also encourage them to share with others what they have learned. Children will learn how to eat a rainbow and be shown how to write healthy recipes for others to try. They can share how they play their favorite sports and games using point-form instructions. They will also share ways to be kind to their families, friends, and the planet. Writing a book is a great way to internalize knowledge.
