A Sporting Event Writing Worksheet

A Sporting Event Writing Worksheet

This writing worksheet asks kids to weigh the pros and cons of hosting a sporting event in their city, and then write a 5-paragraph essay for or against hosting the next big event. Not only does this worksheet provide an introduction to economics, but it also challenges kids to write persuasively in essay format. These are important skills as fifth graders move into more advanced languaged arts and social studies concepts in middle school. This is an especially great activity to do during the next big sporting event, such as the Olympics.
