This product is one of a set of eight writing tasks for fifth grade that align Virginia's fifth grade writing SOLs with either a fifth grade science or social studies SOL. This file includes a rubric, the link to a short video that explains how to use the rubric, the editing marks, the recommended mini-lesson instructional sequence, and the template that teachers may provide students for publishing their work.
Teachers can use this product to reinforce social studies content while teaching Virginia's writing SOLs. Students will find writing more meaningful as they learn new writing skills while reviewing previously-taught social studies content. (Thumbnails do not accurately reflect the printed pages.)
