I love using this research-based narrative writing project with my middle schoolers. The prompt: Compose a story about a character who was been affected by or is involved in some kind of disaster! The first page of this product is a document to get the students thinking. The remaining 7 pages I staple into a packet for the students to hold on to throughout the duration of their writing. It guides them through creating their character, setting, and plot, and provides a details rubric for success.
Great to partner with science!
Sit back and see just how creative your students can be when completing this project. Enjoy!
