WORLD STUDIES:

Use your outline from yesterday (hook it/state it) to write the following paragraph:

INTRODUCTION (paragraph):

1. In the first sentence introduce your subject. How? Grab the reader’s attention with a hook. Mention a unique feature, like climate, housing or economic activity. You do this in a statement or by asking a question. Keep it brief. Don’t explain too much. Do not mention the name of the subject!

2. In the second sentence reveal more about your subject. Mention its name.

3. In the third and final sentence, state your big point as the last sentence of your introduction. (this is in your outline!)
