This is an informational text writing unit about the 1969 Apollo 11 Moon Landing. The unit focuses on the launch, Neil Armstrong and the rest of the crew, the mission and the celebrations afterwards. The unit has been split into three separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each. Perfect for students in 3rd grade or 4th grade.

The first lesson is interactive and involves them cutting out facts, and then sorting these facts into paragraphs. In the second lesson the children need to use these facts to write five paragraphs. Then, in the final lesson your class will need to check their draft paragraphs for mistakes before writing up their work into a neat copy on the template provided.

NO PREP is needed!

Good luck, I hope you get some great results!

If you would like to add another lesson, download my 3rd & 4th Grade Moon Landing Reading Comprehension Activity for just $1.50. This would give the students more background knowledge before they start writing.

We also specialise in play scripts, we have a William Shakespeare collection with Richard III, Macbeth and Hamlet. And a good selection of Christmas play scripts including Elf, The Santa Clause and A Christmas Carol.
