This narrative writing craft is a fun way to either talk about what students' have done over a long break or to allow students to create a fun story about an imaginative road trip that students' "take" with their families. This would be a great writing project to tie to a social studies unit on geography where you have talked about various states or places that students can write about seeing on their road trips.
Students will brainstorm, draft, plan, edit and publish a writing piece about 4 different events that occurred on their road trip. Afterwards, students will complete a simple craft to add a pop of color and fun to their writing. There are three different planning pages differentiated to different learning styles/grade levels. This is a fun writing project that can be taught across one week or shortened to be taught in just a day or two. There is a teaching guide included to see how I would recommend teaching this project, and also photo examples of the planning and publishing steps so there is a clear expectation for students. There are also two rubrics included for various grading styles.
