Opinion Writing- This opinion writing activity is a great way to engage your students in opinion writing while connecting to social studies, and their new friend Wendell! This new twist to opinion writing is sure to engage your students in writing.
Students will complete this opinion writing activity by choosing a state for Wendell to visit. In their opinion writing essay, they will then identify their reasons why he should visit that state, including any places or attractions that he should see. This is a new twist on the ever popular state report, in the form of an opinion writing essay.
This is a very engaging opinion writing activity that combines language arts with social studies and FUN! I would love to know what you and your students think! Either leave feedback here (thank you!) or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
