Want to use writing in your 3rd grade science unit about habitats?
Use this unit to get your gets writing a friendly letter to you about their habitat of choice OR to their parents about why they should visit the region. That gives them two options to steer their letter!!
This unit includes:
- A 4-square organizer for favorite GA habitat
- An identical 4-square organizer for any regional habitat
- A checklist for writing a friendly letter (including optional sentence starts to support reasons!!)
This unit helps you check for understanding, while also assessing their ability to express their opinions, reasoning, and showing evidence!
*Originally, this unit was created for a 3rd grade writing piece, but could be used with 4th and 5th grade for differentiated instruction, especially for students who have weaknesses in writing and organizing their thoughts.
Please provide feedback and let me know what you think!
