This unit will guide teachers on writing in the science curriculum on the topic of "heat." Students can culminate their study of heat and perfect their writing craft at the same time! Teachers will be able to take two grades from the same product. Unit includes step-by-step instructions for the teacher, graphic organizers, publishing paper, extension ideas, and a grading guide. The unit recommends a mentor text (The Web FIles by Margie Palatini) and includes lessons on the traits Voice and Organization. This is a great way to make kids excited about writing in science and prepare them for state writing tests. Aligned to Common Core. Created by Jennifer Lozen.
