Author's Purpose

Read each of the three short passages and decide whether the author's purpose is to persuade, inform, and entertain. After they have identified the purpose, fourth graders explain why they believe that each passage fits that purpose. You could easily use this worksheet as a homework assignment or warm-up activity.
