This is a discussion based writing unit about who is the greatest U.S. Olympian of all time. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each. Perfect for students learning about the Olympics.
The first lesson involves students retrieving facts from informational texts about Michael Phelps, Simone Biles and Jesse Owens, and writing these on to the included fact sheet. In the second lesson students need to use these facts to write three to four paragraphs about the individual Olympians. In the third lesson students need to use prompt sheets to write up an introduction and a conclusion. In the final lesson your class will need to check their draft paragraphs for mistakes before writing up their work on a neat copy using the template provided.
NO PREP is needed!
