ABSTRACT
The article discusses several successful strategies for exploiting anthropomorphisms for use in deep and accurate learning for primary students. One is ensuring the engagement of every student on the topics to be discussed. This can be done by reading aloud amazing features of animals, some factual, some fiction. Another is the stage of preassessment, where it will give the chance for the students to consider what they currently know about human and animal characteristics through the creation of a concept map. Exploration is likewise hinted, where the students would be allowed to read through their books about 15 to 20 minutes. Moreover, postassessment stage must allegedly likewise take place, where the students will communicate their understanding of their animal to the class.
