Thank you for checking out my product! I created this game as a fun way to get my students interested in persuasive writing. They loved it! In this game, each student takes a turn as a person with a particular job. The other students each have a handful of “item” cards and they must select one to try to “sell” to the career person.
They must think about to whom they are trying to sell (segues into “audience” discussions nicely!)
One of my favorites was the student who “sold” a tree to a fireman…he could practice lighting it on fire to put out the fires! My kids loved this game and I know yours will too! This game is best played in small groups of 5-6.
Cards and printable directions are included in the packet. I played it with my third grade class. It could easily be enjoyed with students through high school!
