This opinion writing unit is centered around a camping-theme, asking students to think of the two most important items every camper needs on their camping trip. This unit provides graphic organizers to help students plan out their writing, from a circle map to help generate ideas, to individual sets of pages for each part of their writing (introduction, reasons and examples for camping items 1 & 2, conclusion/restating of opinion). After students have mapped out and written every aspect of their writing, and are ready to publish, pages are included for students to publish their writing into a book!
This unit was created with second graders in mind, but could easily be used for first, third, or fourth grades! I have even included two different kinds of writing paper for differentiation!
