My third grade students love this writing project, but you can use it with any grade! I read Who Will Guide My Sleigh Tonight by Jerry Pallotta and then the students have to create a list of animals that might be good at guiding Santa's sleigh and then write about it. This can be creative writing and/or persuasive/opinion writing. And it is so much fun!
I have also included a rubric to score the writing with!
