This product is a FREEBIE writing lesson from my full day of plans for Thank You, Sarah by Laurie Halse Anderson. The full plans include an activity for reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and a craft! See that version here!

Update November 2020: This product can now be used digitally with Google Slides! You must have a Google Classroom account to use this feature. You will download a PDF with links and directions for assigning this to your class. All activities remain the same.

How does this work?

Your download will come 4 things: teacher lesson plan, Google™ links and directions, brainstorming template, and newspaper template (2 versions). Students are asked to step into Sarah's shoes. They will choose an event to make into a new holiday. Then they will write a persuasive article to convince the public this holiday is needed!
