The Hamburger Paragraph Worksheet, the one time when Language Arts and American fast food collide to form a creative and effecting writing tool for young students. As I was looking around for new printables to illustrate, I made an unfortunate discovery: Just like their namesake cuisine counterparts, all the online hamburger paragraph printables were of poor quality. Cheaply produced clipart illustrations slapped onto Word documents. I decided to mend this problem, by drawing a high-quality hamburger that would actually make your mouth water. Out with the McDonalds, and in with the Long Horn! And now I present to you my creation: Tim’s Printable Hamburger Paragraph Worksheet, sponsored by the kind folks at Dutch Renaissance Press, for your child’s intellectual consumption.
Now you can show you kids and students the layers that make up a strong paragraph. Beginning at the top, we’ve got the topic sentence / top bun. This is the main message of the paragraph. Next we have the supporting sentences, represented on the hamburger by the tasty topping: lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard, pickles, onions, bacon (Mmmm….Bacon). Then, to wrap it all up, we conclude with a conclusion sentence that connects the supporting details with the topic sentence, visually shown by the hamburger’s bottom bun.
Downloading Instructions: This printable is available in color and black & white. Click on a hamburger paragraph image to open a high res version of the drawing.
