Water bottle flipping is an activity where a person throws a partially filled plastic water bottle into the air so that it rotates, in an attempt to land it upright. It became an international trend in 2016 and it has often been criticized as a distraction and a nuisance by teachers and parents. In fact, bottle flipping has even been banned in many schools!

Use the popularity of this craze in your classroom with this fun persuasive writing lesson and writing assignment. Students will absolutely love attempting to convince teachers and parents of the benefits and merits of bottle flipping. Or, if they are frustrated by the practice, it will be their opportunity to convince their peers to put a stop to this annoying activity.
