My Item Is Best - Persuasive Writing

Debating is a great way to get students thinking creatively about persuasive language. For this activity students will go and find the most interesting item they can from your outdoor space and write a list of points as to why their item is the best using their persuasive language techniques.

Once they have put together a strong argument they can then get into groups of 3 or 4 and have a debate about whose item is the best. As an extension, you could then turn their arguments into a piece of persuasive writing.

This is a fantastic and fun activity to encourage the use of persuasive language, especially for your reluctant writers.
