Mammoth Informational Reports

Get ready to write some poster reports!

182

I am always trying to find creative ways to encourage my kids to write.  We focused on informational writing during the first quarter of the school year.  These reports were done using a poster format.  The students had to research mammoths using two book sources and one Internet source.  They had to include specific sections in the  report, but they were able to decide on their own layout design.  They also added a clay tooth model to the report.  I have an actual fossilized mammoth tooth in the classroom (I got it on ebay) and they used it to create the clay model.

They are always excited to write when it is a new final copy format!  These turned out great!  Do you have any creative ways to display written report information?  Please share them in the comments section!

We included eye-catching headers for each section of the report!
