This is not your typical “state report”. With this opinion writing project, students will learn about two states and decide which state is a better place for them to live based on factors that appeal to them. Then they will write a five paragraph opinion essay giving examples, facts, and reasons explaining why one state is a better place to live than the other. Meets Common Core Standards.
State reports are classically assigned as a rite of 5th grade. This 29 page unit, by The Teacher Next Door is aligned with the Common Core, and will help you guide your students to create meaningful, well researched reports. The unit includes students directions, writing pages, a rubric, and more! $
