This lesson plan is a 4th grade opinion writing project. This project is planned to take 2-3 weeks to fully complete. Students will complete various assignments online to help guide them towards their opinion of the prompt, "Which makes a better pet: a cat or a dog?" Students will be using Google Docs to write their opinion paper, Lucid Charts to organize their writing in a graphic organizer, and Adobe Spark to create their final product on this opinion project. Througout the lesson students will engage with the whole class, with partners or small group work, and complete individual work.
Everyone has a story to share. Students tell a story by using a personal object that means something to them and/or their family. Not only does this lesson allow students to get to know each other better, it also is an introduction to teaching history/social studies. History is all about people and their stories.
