Using, "If You're Not from the Prairie," by David Bouchard as a spring board/mentor text, students will write a descriptive piece demonstrating their knowledge of the chosen topic. I had my students focus on their knowledge of California history, however, you could use this same format with another topic or state. These came out great and my whole team ended up using this for an Open House display.
**I have given you directions, samples, and a rough draft template, as well as suggestions for a final draft and what type of artwork you could put with it.
**Students will focus on descriptive writing and their knowledge of the topic.
