Can be used with Common Core W.2.5, W.3.5, and W.4.5
This product is a writing activity that can be used with 2nd, 3rd, or 4th graders to complement a study of desert animals. In the activity, students choose a desert animal and write a friendly letter from the point of view of that animal. The writing activity takes the students through each step of the writing process. As with any writing activity, each step should be modeled by the teacher. The activity took my third graders approximately 2 weeks to complete.
Please note that this is the same writing activity that is included in my "Around One Cactus" product.(http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Around-One-Cactus) Therefore, if you have already purchased that product, this will be a duplicate.
Please download the Preview of this product prior to purchasing, so that you can see the activity in its entirety.
