During the holiday season students are writing letters to Santa, making ornaments, and decorating cookies. I know I love to do all the festive holiday activities, but I also like to add a little bit of Common Core non fiction work too! Since most students know what reindeer are, why not learn what they really are? This is a week long in-class research activity in which students will learn important facts about reindeer, take notes, write a book, and do an artwork activity. Students will take part in the research and writing process!
CC Standard Alignment:
W1.2 Write informative/explanatory texts in which they name a topic, supply some facts about the topic, and provide some sense of closure.
I have included all directions, printables and writing paper for this activity!
Please let me know if you have any questions!
