This project is an engaging way to help kids apply their knowledge of Paul Fleischman's Seedfolks through a creative writing assessment. For this assignment, students must create their own character and chapter to fit into the book. Like the other characters, this new character should have a backstory with a problem, interact with other characters, and use the garden to overcome the problem. This assignment assesses all of the 6 traits of writing. This product includes all of the following: Introduction from the teacher author with description of each resource; assignment overview sheet; rubric; brainstorming sheet; outlining sheet; and peer editing sheet. This project will take anywhere from 1-2 weeks depending on your schedule (block vs. traditional), your students, and how much of the project will be completed at home.
