An informational writing unit and close reading activity about the Apollo 11 Moon landing of 1969 where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first people to set foot on the lunar surface. The bundle has four separate lessons and is perfect for students in fifth grade and sixth grade.

Included in the Informational Writing Unit:

  • Four fact sheets which students need to cut out and sort into paragraphs
  • Writing templates for four draft paragraphs
  • A template for students to write up their neat informational text

Included in the Close Reading Activity:

  • An informational text
  • A comprehension activity with ten varied questions
  • Two grammar questions about the text
  • An extension writing activity
  • An answer page for self-assessment or teacher use
  • A crossword puzzle and wordsearch to consolidate learning


This resource is great for:

  • In class learning
  • Independent work
  • Homework
  • Creative writing sessions
  • Assessment practice
  • Emergency sub plans

The close reading activity requires NO PREP; it has a body of text that students need to read through thoroughly; then they can use the text to find the comprehension and grammar answers. All texts then have an extension activity for those fast finishers and answers, for teacher use, are on the final page of the document. It also contains a crossword activity to consolidate learning.

The Informational Writing Unit is split into three lessons. The first lesson is interactive and involves them cutting out facts, and then sorting these facts into paragraphs. In the second lesson the children need to use these facts to write four paragraphs. Then, in the final lesson your class will need to use the format provided to write an introduction for the text before checking their draft paragraphs for mistakes and writing up their work into a neat copy on the template provided.
