Educators worked with coaches to create Lesson Plans as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.The attached Lesson Plan is designed for 7th or 8th grade English Language Arts students. Students will learn not only about how to write friendly letters, but they will also learn about our country in a fun and engaging way. This is a letter-writing challenge that connects students from all around the United States. Students are assigned a state and they must select three schools within that state to write a letter challenge to. The goal is to see who receives the most letters back by the end of the school year and to learn about the state that they sent letters to.
