Product Description
Groundhog Day is the perfect time for persuasive writing! Can your students influence Punxsutawney Phil to see or not see his shadow? Let them try with this fun (and educational) Groundhog Day opinion writing activity.

After reading a short informational text about the legend and the animal, students decide whether they want six more weeks of winter or an early spring. They develop three strong reasons, pen strong beginnings and endings, consider word choice, and add linking words. Using themed Groundhog Day stationery, each student writes a powerful persuasive paragraph. Voila! You can now show off your students’ work with an attractive classroom or hall display.

This activity can take from one to five class periods, depending on the emphasis you choose.

What’s included:
• complete lesson plans
• “The Legend of the Groundhog” (one-page text)
• quick tip sheet for writing persuasive paragraphs
• 7 student planning sheets
• table of linking words
• editing sheet
• stationery (2 different styles)
• assessment

To see the entire product, click on PREVIEW above.

Do you want your students to write a longer persuasive writing piece? Check out “Persuasive Writing, You Should Try It!”.

Enjoy!
