  1. A stand-alone scaffolded research worksheet with an answer key
  2. Two brainstorming and research template options
  3. Two persuasive text planning template options
  4. Two final copy-writing page options

Ideal as an independent task, this project can also be used in pairs, trios or small groups.

Top Teacher Tip: Need more room to plan and brainstorm? Print these templates in A3!

This activity can be followed up with the Olympic Torch Stained Glass Craftivity.
