Product Description
Poor punctuation is one of the first indicators of weak writing ability. This lesson plan strives to celebrate National Punctuation Day (September 24th) by reviewing the purpose and use of various forms of punctuation. It involves a punctuation scavenger hunt that gives students a review of the different marks, introduces students to lesser known punctuation marks (such as the interrobang), incorporates the use of youtube, and lets students exercise their own creativity by inventing their own punctuation mark. This lesson plan could also be adapted as an introduction or review of a unit on punctuation. I have taught this lesson all five years of teaching, and every year my students show extreme enthusiasm- even creating their own Punctuation Day T-shirts to help celebrate the day. I have taught this lesson in 6th-8th grades, but it could be easily adapted to serve any grade level from 5th-10th.
Included in this lesson plan:
-the lesson plan itself
-punctuation creation page
-an explanation of the interrobang
-clipart images of punctuation marks (for scavenger hunt)
-scavenger hunt instructions
-scavenger hunt clues
