Think Up a Thesis

Practice writing effective thesis statements with this helpful activity. Young readers take five statements that are vague ("The Jonas Brothers are cool."),  and then rewrite the statements to make them more specific. Use this activity as you begin a writing unit or project. For a lesson extension, have them use each thesis statement as the topic sentence of a persuasive paragraph.
