This opinion writing topic is sure to stimulate lots of class discussion. Would your students rather have a cat or a dog for a pet? My current fourth graders seem to debate this topic every day! Yesterday they were arguing about it while they were packing up to go home! Sure to be a lively discussion as most of your students probably have a lot of background knowledge regarding this subject! Students can use information from the discussion to write their opinion and support it with reasons and details.
