This activity can be used for teaching persuasive or opinion writing with lower elementary students. I used this during our Author's Purpose unit. After we studied persuasive writings we practiced writing with opinions, too.
With this activity students will need to decide which pet is best and list two reasons.
This pack includes several different writing papers to differentiate this activity.
- Best Pet (students decides any pet they'd like)
- Dog or Cat
- Snake or Turtle
- Hampster or Bunny
- Fish or Turtle
*** Each writing page comes in both color & black and white ***
Great Mentor texts for this lesson are:
"I Wanna Iguana"
"The Perfect Pet"
"The Pigeon Wants a Puppy!"
Can be used as practice or as an assessment.
