  5. Concluding your text in a dull way. Zzzz… That essay was all about animals.

  6. 1 • Read over your introduction to remember the hook you used. 2 • Read over your last paragraph and determine, “What do I want readers to remember?” 3 Create a conclusion that connects back to the hook and provides a memorable ending.

  7. 1 • Read over your introduction to remember the hook you used. Introduction Have you ever seen an animal hiding? You might have and not even know it! Animals work very hard to blend in with the environment, whether to look for food or make sure they don’t end up as food. Hook Question Answer

  8. 2 • Read over your last paragraph and determine, “What do I want readers to remember?” While camouflage is a way to hide from predators, mimicry and luring is used by predators. Mimicry happens when animals look like other things. In aggressive mimicry, where animals attack for food, they make their body parts look like food to “lure” prey. What should they remember?

  9. 3 Create a conclusion that connects back to the hook and provides a memorable ending. Conclusion Animals have many ways of staying alive. They can use camouflage to hide, mimicry to look like nature, and luring to catch a meal. Next time you go outside, look around and see if you can find an animal using a survival skill. If you can’t it means they’re doing a good job! • Camouflage • Mimicry • Luring Hook Question

  13. Use the example hook question and ending paragraph below to try and write a conclusion: Hook: Have you ever seen a toad? Paragraph: They are sometimes called amphibians. That means they live on land and in water. First as babies they breathe with gills, then with lungs as an adult.

  14. Partner up with at least four students and have everyone write their introduction and conclusion on two separate note cards. • Put the cards facedown in two piles. Let one student at a time pick a card from each pile and see if the introduction and conclusion match.
