One fun creative writing activity is to choose your favorite fictional character and write about their animal counterpart!
We got talking one day about which breeds of dog our favorite book characters would be! We created about 20 'dog versions' of characters which became a creative writing project.
First choose your favorite characters - from books, movies or TV shows. We picked fictional characters - but you could use celebrities or people from history - whatever fits in with your current project.
Next - decide which animal they would be! We stuck to dogs, but how about types of horse, or jungle animals? Or how about types of car - or musical instrument?
We made some picture cards of our doggy characters - just paste the animal or object onto a card and write the character's name underneath!
Now the fun part! You can use your cards for lots of writing activities.
I am sure you will think of lots of other ways to use your cards too. Why not turn them into a card game?
This project works really well for high school homeschooling students!
As well as the writing activities themselves why not use the opportunity to look at the differences and similarities between the words :
