Description

Engage students on Groundhog's Day with this fun craft and opinion writing activity. Students will love this fun prompt and graphic organizers helping them decide if they want 6 more weeks of spring or winter. They will brainstorm ideas as to why they think either season is better, and then publish a writing piece about it.

This lesson can be taught in one day or stretched out throughout five days. Students generate ideas for their writing, then will turn those ideas into a full writing project. This project can be taught throughout a week, or squeezed into one morning.

There are two versions of this craft:

  • Primary Lined (with a sentence stem "I want 6 weeks of...")
  • Intermediate Version (with planning, drafting, editing and publishing pages)

  • Teaching Guide
  • 2 Pages of Photo Examples
  • 2 Brainstorming/Planning Pages
  • 3 Different Versions of Drafts (differentiated)
