Information Paragraph

 

Independent Practice 

The following two activities ask you to write information paragraphs. Activity #1 is an information paragraph based on a reading passage. Activity #2 is based on a writing prompt.

 

Activity #1

Read the following paragraph and respond to the question that follows.

Making bread is not hard, and it exercises the cook, too. The first step is to soak the yeast in water with a little honey. Then add the mixture to flour and water, stirring with a spoon and then with both hands until the dough is firm enough to knead on a floured board. After several risings and kneadings, when arms and hands begin to ache, the bread is baked until crusty and aromatic.
