I found a great unit about the government online at www.scholastic.com.
The format for the letter was:
Dear Mr. President:I just love the imaginations and creative of 6 year-old children. Here are some of my favorite letters.
Congratulations, President Obama! I read about how Presidents help run the country.
One thing I think you should do for America is ___________.
I think this is important because ___________.
One thing I think you should do for America is:
- ... make America a better place and make America nicer because we don't want people to get hurt or shot.
- ... help the world be better because everyone is equal.
- ... raise money for schools because you are making America a better place.
- ... ban robbers from the country because people need their stuff.
- ... tell people not to hurt animals because some animals are nice enough to help the world.
- ... to stop the war because I do not want people to die.
- ... make sure that everybody is OK because everybody should be OK.
- ... for everyone to be happy like Martin Luther King Jr. because everyone needs you, and hope and love.
- ... run the country because if we didn't have a president the world won't be a better place.
- .... don't let people cut down trees because animals live there.
We'll see if we get a response!
