Compare and Contrast Writing / Informational Writing and Research / Sports Bundle: Basketball vs. Volleyball, Football vs. Soccer, and Baseball vs. Hockey
With these engaging project, students will learn about two sports, 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 one sport while the other half learns about the other. Students could partner up to share their research and work together to write the compare and contrast paper.
