Looking for a fun way to teach your students how to research and write informational pieces? Look no further! This unit will help your students research, take notes, organize information, and plan their writing. It will keep them engaged while still having Christmas fun! This unit contains the materials necessary to write an informational book, paragraph, or informational poster about a reindeer/caribou.
This unit is modeled after my "Investigating Arctic Animals"
informational writing unit, and has been used (successfully!) in my own first grade classroom. My students were so excited and engaged. They loved creating their own colorful, fact filled posters and informational books with text features! This unit is perfect for beginning a unit on informational writing or a final activity to complete your unit. Though I used this in first grade, it could be used with second or third graders with varying degrees of independence.
