Get my Inauguration Day 2017 FREE activity that is editable in Google Slides! #KINDNESSNATION #WEHOLDTHESETRUTHS
This is a FOREVER FREEBIE! I created this resource as a part of the #KINDNESSNATION movement that a group of TPT sellers created on the TPT Seller's Forum. You can view that discussion here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=77109&p=2
The objective of this activity is to promote positive attitudes for the upcoming 2017 inauguration (regardless of personal political views), as well as an increased understanding of the Inauguration process and the day's events.
Students are instructed to write a letter to the President Elect (Donald Trump) and tell him of any goals that they would like to see achieved in the new administration. The students are also encouraged to write well wishes to the new President and his family.
The students also learn about the events that occur on Inauguration Day.
COMMON CORE ALIGNMENT:
Write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence.
This activity was created with grades 6 - 8 in mind, but it can be adjusted for upper elementary or high school.
