This is a fun and engaging writing assignment based on student research on an invasive species and the environmental conditions that allow the invasive species to succeed. You assign to each student or pair of students, an invasive species and a specific location where the species is a problem. Students are then assigned to write a "sales pitch" postcard to the species, as if it hadn't already invaded the assigned location. Their card explains why the invasive species would LOVE the location using the details from the student's research.
The product includes information for the teacher, a guided research template, a rough draft graphic organizer, and a final draft postcard. Students write their persuasive paragraph on one side of the card and draw a picture (like a real postcard) on the reverse side to show that they have an understanding of the habitat requirements of the invasive species.
