Incorporate some socials studies in your writing lesson by "traveling" to London! Have students research various aspects of life in London, then plan and write a research paper. Use this to help them learn how to use their research in their writing. To finish, make a class book and share everyone's writing!
In researching this project, I'd recommend using this site as it covers each of the topics I have included and is kid friendly. I printed out specific pages for my students to conduct their research: http://www.projectbritain.com/london/b.html
Included in the pack:
2 Graphic Organizers for planning writing
1 Editing Guide Page
1 Grading Rubric
2 Cover Pages (1 bw, 1 color)
2 Table of Contents (1 blank, 1 filled)
30 Writing Pages
Enjoy! I would love to hear your feedback!
