I used this opinion writing prompt with my students to have them predict whether they thought that the sphere that the Duck and Goose were sitting on was either a ball or an egg. They got to choose whether they wanted to Duck or Goose character for the craft section of this activity, and got to color, cut and paste all of the pieces of their character together. They also used pattern templates to decorate their sphere however they wanted.
The writing prompt says _______ thinks it's a ______ because... Leaving students with a place to write their name as well as their opinion/prediction. They then have as many circular cut outs with lines on them that they need to write why they chose their opinion.
