This week you have been looking at statements similar to this and creating balanced arguments. This prompt can be used for daily free writing, could be your balanced argument statement, or could be used as a topic for verbal discussion/debate.
Would a wild animal (e.g. lion, tiger, elephant, monkey, panda, fox…) make a good pet?
You might want to think about: How would you look after the animal? Would it be happy? What would it be safe from? Would it be easier having it as a pet from when it’s a baby? How cute would a baby tiger be? How dangerous might it get?
