The Wild Kingdom of Animal Adjectives

This week's worksheet introduces students to a whole host of animal adjectives that they can use in their descriptive writing and add to their insult arsenals. It's so much more fun to refer to someone's eating habits as "porcine" instead of just saying they "eat like a pig," right?

Visual Thesaurus word maps can show students to which animal genus each adjective refers, and then students can think about how each of these adjectives could be used figuratively. Click here for the worksheet.
