Teamwork for a Family Dinner is a great writing assignment for the primary grades. It has already been teacher tested. One of the great things about this assignment is that it allows the student to not only write about how they would contribute, but also explore the idea of how others are needed. A group effort is the true definition of teamwork.
Student are also given space create illustrations to go along with their writing.
One idea would be to use this as a Thanksgiving or Christmas, Hanukkah writing assignment.
