My students complete this as homework and then we review it the next day in class. This is my first assignment in my Animal Farm unit, we do this before any reading. This always creates a great discussion in class - students fighting to be the one to share. For the first of the three writing prompts, or, just in your discussion of it, ask students to differentiate between factory farms and traditional family farms, (they can use either as their model, but it should be clear when they share out which they were thinking about). When time allows, we return to this assignments at the end of the unit and reassess what we came up with.
