This student packet is a great writing activity to begin the school year. Your students partner up and interview each other. They then write a nonfiction article about each other. This packet takes your students step by step through the writing process. It begins by reading a sample nonfiction article written by a fourth grade student about her classmate and identifying its features.Your students will also learn how to find a focus, write an introduction and conclusion, revise and edit. This packet can be used whole class or as independent work depending on the writing experience of your students. Your students final draft makes a great bulletin board for back to school night. You can also take a picture of the partnerships to hang up next to their writing.
