In many grades, now, they are required to write a five paragraph essay. One of those paragraphs is a conclusion. I have seen many children struggle with writing a conclusion, so I made this template, so the students could visually see what they were required to do. They were to do an expository paper on an animal, linking it to science and ELA. I change the pictures at the top to whatever topic we are writing about. I hope this helps you students as much as it helped mine. It was also a great differentiated piece and a students choice to use when preparing their research paper. Charlotte Danielson is big on student choice, choosing a writing tool to help them write. I always give my students Graphic Organizers, but I leave out three or four to help them while writing. Attach it with their writing piece, and you have hit domain 3 (demonstrating flexibility).
