In this activity, students take random or wacky topics and practice creating a thesis statement with them.
Directions: Your goal is to take each random topic and make a thesis statement about it. Your thesis should make a judgment about the topic followed by three separate points that support your judgment.
Oh, and by the way: You’ll be flipping a coin each time to determine what your topic will be!
Thesis Example: Peanut Butter and Jelly makes is the best type of sandwich because it mixes sweet with salty, it doesn’t require cooking, and it’s affordable enough for everyone.
