Product Description
This is a 3-week writing unit where students learned how to write an expository paragraph. The idea was that each kid got a city and country somewhere in the world. They had to write a paragraph describing the place, without using the name. After we'd went through each step of writing a paragraph (Modelled, then worked in partners, then independent with support), the culminating activity was that the kids each read their paragraph to the class. The other kids had a map of the world in front of them and used the geographic clues to find the place on the map. We created a large bulletin board display afterwards so that other classes could guess using their paragraphs. I did this lesson with 3rd graders, but it could be used earlier or later, depending. I've included my original 3 weeks of 1 hour writing lesson plans, my handout pages, and an editing guide. If you do this project and want more advice or have questions, email me at mdw3437@yahoo.com and I'd be happy to explain exactly how to use all of the components. I taught this lesson as part of a push-in writing class with a regular teacher and an ELL teacher.
