Product Description
This final project is a favorite for my seventh graders. I used it as a summative assessment after studying Utopias - it would be perfect after a reading of The Giver or other utopia/dystopia novels.

The project is based on the students creating their own Utopias. However, I wanted to have it tied into Argumentative Writing, so graphic organizers lead students on a step-by-step path to not just create their Utopia, but argue why people should choose to live there.

Students use actual sources to add textual evidence to their arguments, and I include examples along the way to help. Add a fun twist by having them present to other classes, and then let students vote on where they'd like to live!
