In this project students create an informational poster using the five types of paragraphs. Students choose their own topic, and research areas that can be described in sequence, by comparing, by description, by explaining cause and effect, and by identifying a problem related to their topic, and possible solutions. The students then share their five paragraphs and illustrations.
By highlighting and identifying key words in their structured paragraphs, students learn the components of the five types while enjoying learning about a topic they are interested in.
Includes multiple levels to differentiate, and evaluation checklists, post assessment.
