PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students need to learn the mechanics of writing articles, for both writing and informative text reading purposes. This lesson aims to teach this skill with a fun spin of writing articles based on childhood fairy tales.

This lesson will work well as part of a larger writing unit, or when studying writing. However, it would also be perfect as a one-off substitute lesson!
