This is a biography writing unit about the life of Robert E. Lee. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each. Perfects for students studying about the American Civil War in 5th grade or 6th grade.

The first lesson is interactive and involves them cutting out facts, and then sorting these facts into paragraphs. In the second lesson the children need to use these facts to write four paragraphs. In the third lesson children need to choose the most important facts and include these in an introduction; after this they need to answer several questions before writing up their conclusion. In the final lesson your class will need to check their draft paragraphs for mistakes before writing up their work into a neat copy on the template provided.

NO PREP is needed - and the unit includes four lessons.

Good luck, I hope you get some great results!

If you would like to add another lesson, download my Robert E. Lee Reading Comprehension Activity for just $1.50. This would give the students more background knowledge before they start writing the biography.

We also specialise in play scripts, we have a William Shakespeare collection with Richard III, Macbeth and Hamlet, and a good selection of Christmas play scripts including Elf, The Santa Clause and A Christmas Carol.

Write routinely over extended time frames (time for reflection and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of discipline-specific tasks, purposes, and audiences.
Draw evidence from informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
Conduct short research projects to answer a question (including a self-generated question), drawing on several sources and generating additional related, focused questions that allow for multiple avenues of exploration.
With some guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach, focusing on how well purpose and audience have been addressed.
Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
