Reluctant writers in your class? Engage them with Pokemon character reports.

I recently came across this amazing art on BoredPanda.  It is an artist’s vision of the anatomy of different Pokemon characters.  Here is an example:

This inspired me to set a homework challenge for my students to create their own Pokemon character non-chronological reports. I hoped it would engage them!

Here is the template I shared with them:

I asked the students to use Google Drawings to create the diagram or alternatively they could draw the Pokemon, photograph it and add it to their report.

Have a look at one of my pupil’s work:

My students commented that they really enjoyed the task because it was about something they were interested in and they could make up creative ideas and facts.
