Send your pets to work as you choose careers and draw cats, dogs, and other pet pals in clothes and environments that fit their new jobs.
Have students consider careers or lives their pets might have if they were human beings. A spunky ferret might be a surfer, a lively parakeet might be a pilot, or a goldfish might be a deep sea diver, for example.
Think about the types of uniforms or clothing that various careers or activities require. Use Crayola® Colored Pencils or Color Sticks on construction paper to draw a favorite pet in a costume.
On lined paper, students write a descriptive story or poem about the pet in their drawing. Edit it, or ask a friend to review it, for spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
