Trek Across America

Bring a time machine into your classroom with this writing lesson, in which young writers project themselves back in time and have a variety of choices from that point forward. They either write a conversation with a historical figure, take a road trip with a founding father or take a vacation with a person from the time period they are studying. This writing lesson is not only fun, but could be a great addition to your narrative unit.

I am a brand new teacher and have felt extremely overwhelmed at times coming up with great activities for my students. Lesson Planet has been a life saver and helped me get through the first few months with a little less stress!
