Use a Bubble Map to write about Chicks

"Oh! He's so cute!" During a recent field trip to Centennial Farm, the children were taught about the life-cycle of a chicken. After all the science facts were learned, they had an opportunity to hold a baby chick! All of the chicks were 'boys' which means they were all cockerels (the term for a male baby chick). This experience made for a perfect writing opportunity…

The Thinking Map we used was the Bubble Map. This type of map is used when you want to gather information to describe something (the use of adjectives). You can see how it is a perfect Thinking Map for writing about the experience.

As a class, we brainstormed and collected information onto the Bubble Map.

Using the following, the children selected words from the Bubble Map to write their own sentences.

Afterwards, a drawing to illustrate the sentences completed the writing.

To do at home:
Have your child use the Bubble Map to write additional sentences about the chick.
