Today, I'm sharing....Dogzilla and Kat Kong by Dav Pilkey.
I love starting the year with this writing activity. It goes right along with reviewing the scientific process/method. We review the vocabulary using a scientific method flip book I created. Students must incorporate the vocabulary in the writing.
Mousopolis is having the very First Annual Barbecue Cook-Off. Dogzilla is awakened by the yummy aroma of barbecue sauce! As Dogzilla's horrible doggy breath fills the streets,
the residents of Mousopolis must run for their lives.
Can they get rid of that big stinky dog before it's too late?
The website, The Writing Fix, has the entire lesson.

There is even an interactive part for students that might need some ideas!
Over at TpT store is the scientific method flip book I created. I have my students work in pairs to complete the flip book. Then, they paste it in their science notebook.
