Suggested answers:

Possible version 1:

The giant panda

Of all the animals, I like giant pandas best. The giant panda, whose home is in Sichuan Province, is known as the national treasure of China. Pandas live in the beauty of nature where they can enjoy their lives happily.

Giant pandas are very beautiful animals with black and white fur like big cats. They usually eat bamboo shoots and leaves and live in bamboo forests, where they can climb trees and play games. I like giant pandas because they are so lovely!

But giant pandas are still an endangered species.I think giant pandas need our help and protection. We should take action to protect giant pandas and let them live in the wild happily.

Possible version 2:

The giant panda

The most iconic animal of China by far is the giant panda. The giant panda is known as one of the most adorable animals in the world for its round face, large dark circles around its eyes, chubby(胖乎乎的) body, typical pigeon-toed(足内翻的) stride(跨步走), as well as paws as sharp as a scalpel. The giant panda is a living fossil and China’s treasure. The giant panda’s diet is over 99% bamboo. Generally, giant pandas spend half the day eating, and most of the rest of their time sleeping. Giant pandas usually are very meek(温顺的), so they are generally not violent towards people.

StepⅣExchange and evaluate

Exchange your draft with your partner and assess each other’s writing.

□ Is the animal’s name included?

□ Are some detailed descriptions such as appearance, feature, uniqueness, relationship with humans included?

□ Does your partner use some rhetorical devices?

□ Does your partner use correct spelling, grammar and punctuation?

□ Is the handwriting beautiful?

StepⅤHomework

Take your draft back and revise it using your partner’s comments. And present your new description to the rest of your class.
