A great writer catches the reader’s attention with a hook! In this worksheet, students learn how to write compelling hooks in informational writing. By beginning their writing with an interesting fact, a question, or imagining a scene, authors make their audience want to keep reading. After learning about these three types of hooks, students practice writing their own! This resource, designed for a third grade curriculum, supports students in the essay writing process, and familiarizes them with the structure of an informative essay.
