Activity Name: How to Survive Animal Reports
Activity Description: Looking for a fun way to jazz up the animal reports your students write every year? After reading How to Survive as a Shark, challenge students to "talk" like a pirate in their animal reports. Give them a list of pirate phrases to get them going: ahoy mateys, buck up, no lyin', aye, lass, mate, blimey, har-har-har, shiver me timbers, argh, blow me down, and scurvy dogs. Fun!
