Instructional Ideas

  • Use with your unit on insects or animals 
  • Expand the activity to include library and Internet research, and a final project about mosquitoes
Classroom Considerations

  • Prompt calls for both informational writing (explaining what a mosquito is) and narrative writing (describing the writer's experience with mosquitoes), which could be confusing for younger writers but helpful for older kids
