Hospital Visit Response Writing
This was a writing assignment following our field trip to the hospital. It asks students to write about their favorite thing that they saw or did, and a question they still have.
We extended both pieces of this activity: after they'd finished answering the first question, they summarized it and wrote it on our thank you poster for the hospital staff. This helped them be more specific in their thank yous. After they turned in the paper, I answered their questions either directly on the page or by attaching further information. For example, a lot of the kids asked about bones, so I attached a level-appropriate article to their paper before I returned it.
