Scientists have captured a new, mysterious creature and are keeping it safe in the lab. Each student will create this “mystery creature” in their mind, then brainstorm ideas on an outline, design a visual aid, write a report (rough and final draft), and give a presentation detailing its physical characteristics, ideal habitat, how it communicates, and other important information. Their imaginations will run wild! The best part? They will have FUN while you are assessing their writing and presentation skills! It’s a WIN-WIN!
