Class Description:

🏕️ Lesson 1: Which Type of Camper Are You?
Share your experiences, from nature hikes and national park visits to not-so-fun bug bites! (Even if you’ve never camped before, it’s ok! We will embark on a crazy campout together!) Write hilarious and beautifully descriptive acrostic poetry.

🥾 Lesson 2: Be a Trailblazer!
Create an indoor/backyard nature trail by researching animals, plants, or places you’ll see along the way. Use a graphic organizer to learn how to write the “perfect” paragraph. Happy trails!

🐟 Lesson 3: Go Fishing for Listicle Ideas!
Be a nature blogger and learn how to write like the pros. Write a humorous, nature-themed “listicle” style article.

✍️ Lesson 4: Explore Persuasive Writing
Identify the elements of persuasive writing. Choose an audience and conservation topic, and write a persuasive letter or essay using evidence to support your point of view.
