The animals at the zoo are tired of being behind bars, so one lucky animal, of your choosing, will get to spend a full week visiting you inside your home. Your job is to close read about each zoo animal and write a passage explaining who you plan to take home with you and why. Your essay must not only contain a strong paragraph about who is coming home with you, but also a paragraph on each animal that you will be passing up. Be sure you use textual evidence to support your answer.
This is our newest challenge in education––getting students to close read and use textual evidence to write after reading multiple texts. Here's a ready made activity to get your students thinking critically. After the teacher and students read an example passage and discuss the pros and cons of taking a sea lion home, students will be asked to read and make decisions on their own in this lesson by Catch My Products.
