This template can be used in conjunction with a writing unit, history-based unit, or as a stand-alone lesson. The template requires students to write a "Thank You" letter in a formal tone to all veterans. Students are required to thoughtfully construct the letter using appropriate words/phrases/sentence structure. I use this template as a first draft. We peer review the letter and then transfer it to stationary paper that has been cut into 5.5x8.5 (half of an 8.5x11). These can be displayed in your room, hallway, or during a school program.
