I love teaching social studies topics and Memorial Day is one more opportunity to share my love of this topic with my firsties! :)
The goal of this informational/opinion writing is for students to list reasons that they need to remember service members and how we can help or encourage them.
In this 14 page pack, you'll get a brainstorming sheet, a draft sheet, a student friendly editing checklist, a revision sheet, and two versions of a final draft sheet.
There are explicit directions for how to assemble the cover of the final writing. You'll be creating a simple book out of the cover, the writing and an additional piece of construction paper for the back. (This allows for students who may want to write more than one page! :)
I hope you'll enjoy writing about the importance of remembering our servicemen & women! :)
