Thank you for taking interest in my product! Every year my students complete a compare and contrast essay. Moving more towards Common Core, I have designed this cross-curricular social studies and research packet where students will have to research the state that they currently live in and another state. After gathering their information, they will complete a five-paragraph compare and contrast essay incorporating information from both their state as well as the state that they researched. This research packet can be used as a guide for their writing.
Important notes to mention: Because this is a research project, you (or your students) will need to gather materials to use on both the state they live in as well as the state they are researching.
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you see any issues with this product, or if you have any feedback. Please follow me on teacherspayteachers for future product postings.
