Body Paragraph Model: Thesis Statement – then 2nd Body Paragraph.

  • What is the topic sentence?

  • What transition words are used?

  • Similarly, the ocean of outer space exudes dangers, and it presents several unique challenges for explorers.

  •        Additionally, a third special challenge involved with the environment of space involves the fact that it is quite difficult to find life-sustaining water off the Earth. For example, Mercury, the planet closest to the Sun, is too hot to have water, hence space travelers must take water from Earth if they want to visit Mercury. A similar situation exists on the planet Venus, second from the Sun. This planet is likewise too hot for water to exist. Similarly, the fourth planet, Mars, feels cold and dry as well; therefore, some water may freeze at the north and south poles of the planet.

  • What is used in the paragraph to support the topic sentence: factual data, statistics, quotes, ideas, or evidence?
