Product Description
Compare and Contrast Writing / Informational Writing and Research / Basketball vs. Volleyball

With this engaging project, students will learn about basketball and volleyball, write informational papers about the sports, compare and contrast the sports, and write a compare and contrast paper.

The project could be implemented in several ways:
-For younger students, it could be a whole class shared/guided reading and writing project.
-Older students could conduct their own research with books and online resources, possibly in a reading/writing center.
-One sport could be a whole-class guided research writing project, the other could be independent. Then the class could compare and contrast both.
-Half of the class could research and write about basketball while the other half learns about volleyball. Students could partner up to share their research and work together to write the compare and contrast paper.
