I created this writing activity to accompany the story, "Honey Bees" in Reading Street. It can be used with or without that specific story. This activity contains a prewriting sheet for students to locate 6 facts about bees. You can use any text about bees!! You will also find a graphic organizer to organize the bee facts before writing. I have labeled the boxes on the graphic organizer so students can easily transfer their bee facts from the graphic organizer to the bee writing paper. I have included a box on the writing paper so students can provide an illustration with their writing. I plan to have students create a bee diagram with labels in that box.
I hope you find this writing activity a great compliment in your classroom.
