Warm Up:
What is the purpose of an opinion statement?

Activity 1:
Since a problem can be solved with several possible solutions, making a list of possible solutions would be beneficial. You will need to begin with a sentence starter.

Sentence Starter
The Jekyll Island trip will not be an option for next year unless…
• The economy gets better.
• The school budget cuts something else.
• Parents make donations.
• Students figure out fundraisers to help pay for the cam experience.
• A miracle happens
Students will need to use a sentence starter to state their problem and ends with “unless” or “until.” Refer to your research paper and write as many solutions as you can. Put a star by the solution you feel is most workable.

Activity 2:
Students will now need to figure out how the solution will work. In order to persuade your reader to believe in your solution, you will need to complete the following chart:

5W’s and H Chart

Gathering Details About the Solution
Who Dr. Tyson, 7th grade teachers, 7th grade students
What Money for the Jekyll Island trip

Students will need to complete the Sentence Starter Solutions and the 5W’s and H Chart.
