your students make up their own books based after A Porcupine
Named Fluffy. This works really well when studying a unit
on synonyms and antonyms. First, have them choose an animal. For
example, one may choose a giraffe. Then have them list all the
words that describe a giraffe. For example, "tall",
"slim", "long neck", "four legs",
etc. Then have them choose one word and write its antonym. For
instance, one may say the antonym of "tall" is "short."
Now they have a title for their new book! It may be called, A
Giraffe Named Shorty!
