Today, I read the best book aloud: What If You had T-Rex Teeth: and Other Dinosaur Parts, by Sandra Markle.
This creative book explores what would happen if you had a Brachiosaurus’ neck, an Ankylosaurus’ spikey tail, or a Triceratops’ three-horned face. The results are hilarious!
Using the book as inspiration, I created a writing activity where each student chose a body part from the dinosaur that they have researched. Then, they wrote why that body part would be fun to have. Finally, I snapped a picture of each student, and they illustrated themselves with that body part. Look at our finished products:
Too much fun!
