You are a turkey writing an article to the local newspaper trying to convince people to eat beef or chicken...NOT TURKEY!!
This is also available in the Ultimate Thanksgiving BUNDLE by Clicking HERE!
There is an article provided on the benefits of chicken, as well as an informational page on the benefits of beef. Students will use this information to help them write a persuasive newspaper article helping to make their case to NOT EAT TURKEY FOR THANKSGIVING!!
Students are also given a note page, a graphic organizer to get them through the planning stage of planning, as well as stationary to write their letter.
This activity allows students to read articles, while practicing using text details to support their claim, a common core standard of writing.
Please note, I have this project listed as taking a week. This would be the approximate length if you used this as a complete project using the stages of writing.
Thanks for looking,
