This product is a FREEBIE writing lesson from my full day of plans for The Legend of the Poinsettia by Tomie dePaola. 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 3 things: a teacher lesson plan, brainstorming template, and newspaper template (2 versions). Students will learn about legends and come up with their own!
