There are valuable science facts, information, and examples on each page to give students a mini-lesson before they respond in writing. All prompts are aligned with 2nd grade standards.

• Early Finisher Work- There is a box on each page for students to illustrate their writing/the information they have learned. This is great for students to work on when they finish before their classmates!

• Mini-Versions- All prompts are included on cards without lines or boxes. This is perfect for putting in a center so you don’t have to print class sets. They also are great for an early finisher station. Students can grab a card at any time for an engaging writing activity.
