Travel through Europe with ten-year-old Teddy Roosevelt in this writing activity, which uses the picture book My Tour of Europe: by Teddy Roosevelt, by Ellen Jackson. After reading the book, readers compare it to passages from The Boyhood Diary of Theodore Roosevelt, both of which are primary sources of the same account. Next, they will use the themes and "big ideas" to make their own picture books. Writing instructions can be found on the lesson plan link.
