Solar System Writing Prompts
Solar System writing activities
Day & Night
Each of the writing prompt covers one specific element and is taken directly from every fourth grade social studies standard in Georgia. The standard is conveniently located in the upper-left corner as well. At the end, there are two blank pages for writers who may need additional space! There is also a generic rubric that can be used to score and assess the writing prompts. (Please note these were written with Georgia in mind, but are not specific!)
I hope that you enjoy this product as much as I have in my own classroom. With all of the standards that we must teach, I have a difficult time fitting in daily writing. This product is the solution to that problem and is an easy, “print-and-go” way to integrate social studies into writing instruction or vice versa. I sincerely hope that this product will make your life as a social studies teacher easier, while helping your students to think more critically about history and the important events that have shaped our nation’s history.
