This resource includes six activities to send in the mail to your students’ pen pals. Each activity has a page for lower and upper elementary (primary lines and single lines).  This could be sent instead of or alongside letters to their pen pals.  If you’re a Benchmark teacher, this aligns great with Unit 4 (point of view).

What activities are included?

  • Questionnaire – Students choose questions to ask their Pen Pal to learn more about them
  • Compare/Contrast Venn Diagram – Students use the information from the Questionnaire to compare and contrast themselves with their Pen Pal
  • Mad Libs – Pen Pals work together to write a silly story using parts of speech
  • Story Writing – Pen Pals co-author and co-illustrate a story
  • Scavenger Hunt – Students create a scavenger hunt for their Pen Pal to complete in their classroom
  • Spelling Word Search – Students use spelling words to create a word search for their Pen Pal to complete
