Objective: The students will be able to compose a friendly letter.
Activity: Look at the pictures of Owney and a few Owney tags.
Think of two questions you would ask Owney. Maybe you could ask him about some of the places he has gone or what jobs he did for the post office.
Also, think of one thing you can tell Owney about yourself. Maybe you could tell him about places you have gone or jobs that you do.
