This is an activity for opinion writing (ELA) and first grade social studies (Celebrations). For social studies, we will first have students think about birthday customs in their family. Next, students will be paired up to compare their birthday customs. We will read books about birthday celebrations around the world. Then students will compare their own birthday customs to those in another country of their choice.
For ELA - students will write a persuasive letter to their parents convincing them to buy their favorite cupcake flavor.
