This mini unit will engage and inspire your kids to learn about friendly letters and persuasive writing. Students will learn about the parts of a friendly letter and practice identifying the parts. After researching an animal of their choosing, students will write a letter to their parents persuading them to get the student a pet! This unit was fun and really hooked my students!
A great introductory activity is to read "I Wanna Iguana" but you can certainly use the unit without the book!
Key Words: Persuasive Writing, Friendly Letters, Parts of a Letter, I Wanna Iguana
