Historical Pen Pals
A pen pal from another time and place! At the culmination of each lesson within a topic, each student becomes a character from that time and place, develops a voice and back story, and writes to their pen pal (in a different classroom) describing key events and the impact on their life. Pen pals respond back and forth, considering different perspectives, until the unit is complete in this creative way to summarize learning and empathize with others.
Examples:
  • American Revolution: Colonist and British Soldier
  • Early Exploration: Natives and Explorers
  • Missions: Native Americans and Spaniards
  • Civil War: Northerner and Southerner
