Earth Day Persuasive Writing and Craft | Year 3-5


Product Details

Create confident writers with these environmentally themed persuasive writing activities and games. This resource breaks down writing instruction, so it is simple to teach and fun to learn!

Earth Day is the perfect time to engage our students in persuasive writing because there is so much to write about when it comes to being environmentally friendly, sustainable and good citizens of the planet.

Children love learning through games, and as teachers, we have witnessed the benefits. Due to this, we have included lots of games in this package to build persuasive language skills!


We know how important it is to cater for the range of needs in the classroom. This pack includes lots of opportunities for differentiation (and we have done the hard work for you!):

  • The word wheel can be used as individual tools to support students, especially those kinaesthetic learners.
  • Speaking and listening games have been included to support students before being asked to write independently.
  • The spinner games are a great way for students to work in mixed ability pairs, so students needing support can hear modelled sentences before constructing their own.
  • Different planning templates have been included depending on the complexity of writing you expect from each of your students.
  • All writing proformas/templates include two versions, one that provides text structure support and the other that doesn’t.


  • Earth Day 3D display (you can use this to publish writing at the end of the unit)
  • Agree or disagree game and popstick labels
  • Brainstorm – Ways we can care for Earth
  • Language sort activity
  • Emotive language cloze
  • High modality spinner game
  • Convincing language spinner game
  • High modality word wheel
  • Environmental persuasive sentences chatterbox
  • Planning my writing template x2
  • Writing think board
  • Earth Day writing prompts
  • Writing templates

This resource includes everything you need to teach persuasive writing in a FUN and ENGAGING way!
