Persuasive writing-Thanksgiving

4th grade- I teach persuasive writing around the month of November and conclude the unit with a persuasive essay/paragraph from the Turkey's point of view. My students are the turkey's and they are trying to convince people to eat ham instead of turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. When the writing project is complete, we share them with another 4th grade class. That 4th grade class then writes their own persuasive essay from the pig's point of view. They try to convince people to eat the Turkey, not the ham. When they are finished with their project, they share their writing pieces with our class. It is a fun activity related to the holiday but still focused on an important writing strategy.
