Product Description

Students will first find out what a claim is, then read an article about animals in captivity. Should animals be held in zoos or not? This persuasive/opinion writing piece if one that always captures students' attention and engages them from the minute you tell them the topic.

Students will then use the graphic organizer provided to write down notes and plan their essay stating their own claim. Students will then begin to plan an essay where they will take a stand, making their own claim using specific details from the texts they read. This activity allows students to read articles, while practicing using text details to support their claim, a common core writing standard.

This activity is one that I'm sure your kiddos will enjoy, as it challenges everything they thought they knew about the topic.

Thanks for looking!
