Elementary schoolers explore the concept of a memoir. The teacher tells a story from his/her childhood as an example of what a memoir is; a written account of one's past. The kids are asked to pretend that they are now adults, and are looking back on their childhood. They write a short memoir that is based on a fond memory that stands out for them. This terrific writing exercise should yield great results, and the parents of your kids will really enjoy reading them.
