You’re almost ready to begin writing. In fact, you already have. Those stacks of notes you just made will become
your paragraph topics in the next step.
Before you really begin to write, think about your subject one more time. Look over your stacks. Can you arrange
them in an order that makes sense?
For example, these stacks of notes about the hornet were arranged by general info, diet, habitat, impact,
and prevention. It made sense to put “general info” first since that information is like an introduction
to the subject, hornets. Diet might come next since what an organism eats can determine where it lives (habitat).
