Product Description
In addition to writing an argument, students will engage in the research process. This Common Core Aligned writing pack is a great, yet simple way to get students thinking about the concepts of argumentative writing and the research process.

Who can use this writing pack?
This pack is geared towards higher level 3rd or 4th graders. It can also be used with 5th and 6th graders.

How long will this take me?
When I taught this, it took about 8-9 weeks. I modeled everything with my own state. (I chose a state no one was using and went through the whole process with the students.)

What will I get in this writing pack?
Posters (10 total)
Building an argument (this is a quick practice to see what they know. You could style it as a debate or a pre-assessment. Cards with topics are included)
