Personal narratives are such a big focus in fourth grade as we gear up for the state writing test. After it is over, we love to have a little fun! (Not that personal narratives aren't, of course!:)) To go along with our Reading Street story, Moonwalk, and our rocks and minerals unit in science, I gave the students the creative writing prompt, "My Trip to the Moon." Boy, are nine and ten year olds creative! We had so much fun!
To illustrate their writing, the students used Elmer's glue to draw craters on the moon, let it dry overnight, and then used watercolors to finish off their designs. Super easy, right? Next, we added a cute robot with the student's picture to personalize the illustration. (I wish you could see their cute faces!) We finished off our designs by drawing stars with white crayons.

There is a TON of cute robot clip art on Google Images.
