You’ll find writing prompts, poetry activities, letter writing, news research, and a few creative pages to keep your artistic students engaged!

“Used this as part of a packet for my students' state booklet - worked great and everyone really liked the opportunity to ‘add color.’” – K.S.

“This is just what I was looking for my son! We just moved to a new state and for our homeschool I wanted a packet that covered everything. Thanks!” – L.F.
