In this activity, kids practice writing an emu text. They describe a beaver by answering the questions. Students explain how the emu looks, where it lives, and what it eats. Students learn to form written sentences that others can understand. They continue to work on proper letter formation and spacing. The writing is based on previously reading the passage about the emu. Students read their writing to their classmates and ask them to guess what animal it is.
