This is a fantastic multiple day writing unit.
Students decorate and assemble their own totem pole.
They have an option to include themselves in the pole.
Students then use the totem pole as a scaffold for writing.
Students can complete two graphic organizers to plan for their writing.
An exemplar sample is included with beginning, middle, and endings highlighted with arrows.
Writing paper also included.
You can hang the totem poles on the wall or attach to 3 paper towel holders. Excellent addition to any Thanksgiving Unit!
