New science standards focus on how people impact the environment while Common Core ELA standards focus on opinion/persuasive writing. This product combines these. An original reading passage get students thinking about human interactions with the environment and 4 writing prompts help student understand different points of view that may arise from these interactions. These writing tasks are highly engaging to all students, even those who hate to write! These versatile task cards could be used in either science, to supplement learning about animals, or during an opinion writing unit.
