Edward the Emu Persuasive Writing Lesson

Edward-the-Emu_Lesson_Plan_Classroom-InspirationsEdward the Emu is one of my favorite books. Students love the animals and the surprise ending. Students will write an opinion piece about which animal they think is the best in the zoo. This lesson is a great introduction to persuasive writing and can easily be differentiated with the two graphic organizers that are included. Student work can be displayed in the hallway with the cute hallway poster that is included.


Lesson Plan Includes:

Lesson Plan
Graphic Organizer (with prompts)
Blank Graphic Organizer
P.I.E. Poster (Author’s Purpose)
Student Stationary
Hallway Poster
