My 4th Grade integrated LA/SS class really enjoyed this mini unit during our study of poetry and the Revolutionary War. I introduced them to 8 different types of poetry and they practiced creating their own poems using the Revolutionary War as a common theme. It really reinforced their understanding of the main people, places, and events of the war. At the same time, the activities encouraged them to review their ongoing toolbox of LA skills in the areas of figurative language, grammar, and descriptive writing.
