It is often challenging for students to create expository writing pieces when they are accustomed to narrative writing. This lesson walks the class through creating an expository piece in a very kid friendly matter of fact way. I do this over 5 thirty-minute writing lessons. The scoring rubric was created using grades 3-5 Common Core.
Look for my Halloween and Thanksgiving Expository lessons, which have the same format.
